Vitamin D Deficiency Linked to Vertebral Fragility Fractures.
Blood samples from seniors who fractured one or more vertebrae as a result of a fall showed significantly lower vitamin D levels when compared with seniors who had not experienced such an injury. This suggest that older adults who are vitamin D deficient should take measures to improve their vitamin D levels because serious injuries related to falls can significantly impact both their independence and quality of life.
