Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Baseline 25OHD Levels [ Time Frame: Baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    25OHD will be drawn at baseline prior to starting vitamin D supplementation.

  • Follow-up 25OHD Levels [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    After 11weeks of treatment, repeat 25OHD levels will be drawn to assess subject response to vitamin D supplementation.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Baseline Assessment of Bone Markers [ Time Frame: Baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Bone specific alkaline phosphatase, CTx, and osteocalcin will be assessed at baseline prior to subjects starting vitamin D supplementation

  • Assessment of Bone Markers at Follow-up [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    After 11 weeks of vitamin D supplementation bone specific alkaline phosphatase, osteocalcin, and CTx will be repeated to see response to therapy.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Low Dose Vitamin D
Subjects are randomized to one of two supplemental vitamin D arms.
Drug: Supplemental Vitamin D
Two doses of daily supplemental vitamin D taken for 11 weeks.
Active Comparator: High Dose Vitamin D
Subjects are randomized to one of two supplemental vitamin D treatment arms.
Drug: Supplemental Vitamin D
Two doses of daily supplemental vitamin D taken for 11 weeks.

Detailed Description:

Vitamin D deficiency is a common problem. Currently, data do not support a recommended vitamin D supplementation dose for health adolescents to maintain normal vitamin D levels. This double blind, randomized controlled 12 week trial compares the use of two supplemental doses of vitamin D in this population.
