Overview of D Community
Are There Specific Symptoms or Nonskeletal Disease States for Which Vitamin D Measurement and Supplementation Improve Health?
Therapeutic benefits for chronic nonskeletal disorders have not been established.A variety of nonskeletal disease states have been associated with vitamin D levels, but clinical trials generally do not support health benefits of supplementation.Evidence is mixed for some conditions, and larger trials will be required to draw definitive conclusions.Table 1 summarizes the effects of vitamin D supplementation on certain medical conditions.
Do Screening Asymptomatic Individuals for Vitamin D Deficiency and Supplementing Those Identified as Deficient Improve Health?
There is insufficient evidence to recommend screening the general population for vitamin D deficiency.Treating asymptomatic individuals with identified deficiency has not been shown to improve health.
Does Routine Supplementation with Vitamin D in the Adult Population Result in Improved Health?
Clinical trials have not demonstrated health benefits of routine vitamin D supplementation in community-dwelling adults.Potential harms of excessive vitamin D include nephrolithiasis, soft tissue calcification, and renal and cardiovascular damage.
Enrolled in Commonwealth Coordinated Care Plus but not with Optima Health?
Consider switching to Optima Health Community Care, a Medicaid Managed Long Term Services and Supports plan that can increase the level of benefits that you would get from Original Medicare or Medicaid alone.
How Is Vitamin D Deficiency Defined?
The National Academy of Medicine (formerly the Institute of Medicine) considers a serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25-OH-D) level of 12 to 20 ng per mL (30 to 50 nmol per L) as the normal range for adequate exposure to vitamin D to maintain bone health.Individuals with levels less than 12 ng per mL will usually be deficient, and 97.5% of individuals with a serum level higher than 20 ng per mL have adequate vitamin D exposure.
