BACKGROUND Vitamin D deficiency is common in older adults and has been implicated in psychiatric and neurologic disorders. This study examined the relationship among vitamin D status, cognitive performance, mood, and physical performance in older adults. METHODS A cross-sectional group of 80 participants, 40 with mild Alzheimer disease (AD) and 40 nondemented persons, were selected from a longitudinal study of memory and aging. Cognitive function was assessed using the Short Blessed Test (SBT… Expand

Vitamin D status and measures of cognitive function in healthy older European adults
TLDR
Vitamin D insufficiency, but not deficiency, is widespread in the older population of several European countries and low vitamin D status was associated with a reduced capacity for SWM, particularly in women. Expand
Vitamin D deficiency is associated with worse cognitive performance and lower bone density in older African Americans.
TLDR
Vitamin D deficiency in older African Americans was associated with worse cognitive performance and lower BMD of the hip. Expand
Vitamin D in relation to cognitive impairment, cerebrospinal fluid biomarkers, and brain volumes.
TLDR
It is suggested that vitamin D may be associated with cognitive status, CSF Aβ(1-42) levels, and brain tissue volumes, and the associations between 25(OH)D and tau variables were not significant. Expand
25-hydroxyvitamin D and physical and cognitive performance in older people with chronic conditions.
TLDR
In elderly people with comorbid conditions, 25(OH)D levels were not associated with handgrip strength, but were associated with balance and cognitive function, and these associations necessitate further research evaluating the effect of vitamin D supplementation on the functional status in elderly people. Expand
Physical Fitness and Serum Vitamin D and Cognition in Elderly Koreans.
TLDR
The current findings of the study suggest that promotion of physical fitness and vitamin D supplementation should be key components of interventions to prevent cognitive decline with normal aging. Expand
Vitamin D, cognition, and dementia
TLDR
Lower vitamin D concentrations are associated with poorer cognitive function and a higher risk of AD, and further studies are required to determine the significance and potential public health benefit of this association. Expand
Cognitive Functioning of Geriatric Patients: Is Hypovitaminosis D the Next Marker of Cognitive Dysfunction and Dementia?
TLDR
There is strong evidence that higher vitamin D levels, higher body mass index (BMI), and higher mobility function measured with the Timed Up and Go (TUG) test are independently associated with better cognitive performance and lower risk of dementia. Expand
The association between serum vitamin d level and cognitive function in older adults: Cooper Center Longitudinal Study.
TLDR
Preventative measures such as vitamin D supplementation may play a protective role in memory loss and/or age-associated cognitive decline as measured via the Montreal Cognitive Assessment. Expand
Vitamin D and depression in geriatric primary care patients
TLDR
Vitamin D deficiency was present in a fifth of this older primary care population and lower vitamin D levels were associated with depression, particularly among those with severe deficiency. Expand
Vitamin D and risk of cognitive decline in elderly persons.
TLDR
Low levels of vitamin D were associated with substantial cognitive decline in the elderly population studied over a 6-year period, which raises important new possibilities for treatment and prevention. Expand

Absence of effect of depression on cognitive performance in early-stage Alzheimer disease.
TLDR
Depression does not worsen cognitive test performance beyond the effect of dementia and little relation was found between performance on the cognitive tests and the number of depressive features reported by the individual or collateral source. Expand
High prevalence of vitamin D deficiency and reduced bone mass in elderly women with Alzheimer's disease.
TLDR
It is concluded that vitamin D deficiency due to sunlight deprivation and malnutrition, together with compensatory hyperparathyroidism, contributes significantly to reduced BMD in AD patients. Expand
A prospective study of cognitive function and onset of dementia in cognitively healthy elders.
TLDR
The rate of change in psychometric performance before clinically detectable cognitive change occurred was not significantly different between those who eventually developed dementia and those who remained stable, except for performance on the Logical Memory subtest of the Wechsler Memory Scale.

The relation between psychometric test performance and physical performance in older adults.
TLDR
Cognitive processing speed is a significant component of physical frailty in this population of older men and women, although it accounts for a small percentage of variance on a standardized physical performance test. Expand

TLDR
The combination of clinical assessment on function and episodic memory test can improve the predictive ability of each measure for progression to AD in QD individuals when used in combination with clinical assessment or memory test. Expand
Vitamin D in schizophrenia, major depression and alcoholism.
TLDR
Findings do not support the idea that vitamin D is specifically involved in the pathophysiology of depression and the difference in patients as compared to the healthy controls might be related to a different social background resulting in differing habits e.g. of nutrition. Expand
Vitamin D Deficiency in Homebound Elderly Persons
TLDR
Despite a relatively high degree of vitamin supplementation in the United States, homebound elderly persons are likely to suffer from vitamin D deficiency. Expand
Effects of Vitamin D and Calcium Supplementation on Falls: A Randomized Controlled Trial
TLDR
A single intervention with vitamin D plus calcium over a 3‐month period reduced the risk of falling by 49% compared with calcium alone, andMusculoskeletal function improved significantly in the Cal+D‐group (p = 0.0094). Expand
Disagreement in the reporting of depressive symptoms between patients with dementia of the Alzheimer type and their collateral sources.
TLDR
Multiple-regression analyses revealed that both level of insight and level of physical illness in the subjects with DAT significantly influenced the discrepancy, and an increased sense of burden in the CSs was associated with a larger symptom gap in both DAT and control subjects. Expand
Hypovitaminosis D in medical inpatients.
TLDR
Hypovitaminosis D is common in general medical inpatients, including those with vitamin D intakes exceeding the recommended daily allowance and those without apparent risk factors for vitamin D deficiency. Expand
