Low serum concentrations of 25-hydroxyvitamin D in older persons and the risk of nursing home admission
Wow!! 3.5 times the risk for nursing home admission in Vit D deficient patients. Skip the long term care insurance and buy some supplemental Vit D… But seriously, if something as simple, cheap and safe as Vit D supplementation can drastically reduce the number of nursing home admissions, than articles like this one need to be pasted all over the news.
With all the research on Vit D and the large range of strong benefits, Vit D supplementation in the range of 2,000 IU/day needs to be moving in the direction of a national recommendation.
