METHODS Review and reanalysis of published measurements and analysis of tissue samples from growing pigs raised in confinement on diets providing about 2000 IU vitamin D/day. Cholecalciferol and 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D] concentration measured by HPLC. RESULTS Mean serum 25(OH)D in all studies combined was 45 nmol/L. At the level of vitamin D repletion represented by this… CONTINUE READING
