Relative contributions of diet and sunlight to vitamin D state in the elderly



Relative contributions of diet and sunlight to vitamin D state in the elderly



British Medical Journal 2(6185): 303-305



In winter the vitamin D state of elderly people may reach levels associated with osteomalacia, although the disease may not be clinically apparent. A statistical correlation was observed in a group of elderly subjects during the winter between dietary vitamin D intake and vitamin D state, but the intake was generally too low to make a biologically important contribution to maintaining vitamin D concentrations.
