Detailed Description:
Vitamin D inadequacy continues to be neglected in nursing home residents. We hypothesized that part of this neglect is due to absence of data documenting safe and effective ways to replete this inadequacy. Subjects with low vitamin D concentrations are dosed with 50.000 IU three times a week for 25 hydroxy vitamin D, parathyroid hormone and bone turnover status. .
