Oct 10, 2018 | Musculoskeletal Health, Vitamin D

As reported in MedwireNews, University of Auckland investigators reviewed 81 randomized controlled trials comprising 53,537 participants, of vitamin D supplements that included fracture (n=42), falls (n-37), or bone mineral density (n=41) as an outcome. According to the findings, vitamin D supplementation had no “clinically relevant effects on fractures, falls and bone mineral density.” The researchers noted that there are exceptions including for rare conditions of rickets and oteomalacia.
