Vitamin-D Deficiency and its Effect on Bone Profile: An Observational Study
Background: 25- hydroxyvitamin D (25-OHD) is an essential vitamin to be regulated in the body. It has a key function in the regulation of calcium, phosphate, and magnesium homeostasis. This study aims to explore the association between vitamin-D and bone profile.
Study design: Observational study.
Methods: Laboratory results including vitamin D and bone profile had been collected from 197 patients who visited the university hospital between the period of January 2013-March 2018 aging more than or equal to 10 years. Data were analyzed through SPSS.
Results: 76.4% of normal PTH patients had decreased vitamin D levels, 80.5% of optimal ALP subjects were vitamin D deficit, 80.1% of people with normal calcium had low vitamin D and 80% of normal serum phosphate patients had lower than normal vitamin D levels.
Conclusion: No significant association was found between vitamin D deficit patients and other bone profiles.
