We studied the prevalence of poor vitamin D status and the association with bone density in men and women born in Norway (quoted as Norwegians, n = 869) and Pakistan (quoted as Pakistanis, n = 177) in the population-based Oslo Health Study, 2000-2001. We measured 25-hydroxyvitamin D, iPTH and ionized calcium in serum and bone mineral density at the forearm site with single energy X-ray absorptiometry. Mean 25-hydroxyvitamin D was 74.8 +/- 23.7 nmol/l in the Norwegians and 25.0 +/- 13.6 nmol/l… CONTINUE READING
