Success Rate in Achieving a 25(OH)D Level ≥30ng/mL After 12 Weeks of Oral Vitamin D Supplementation. [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
Percentage of participants successfully repleted to 25(OH)D ≥30ng/mL after 12 weeks of oral vitamin D supplementation.
To assess the success rate of a standard, 12-week, vitamin D supplementation regimen in achieving a 25(OH) D levels>30ng/mL in virologically-suppressed, vitamin D-depleted, HIV-infected subjects

Vitamin D in HIV-Infected Patients on HAART
Vitamin D, Immune Activation, and Metabolic Abnormalities in HIV-Infected Patients on Antiretroviral Therapy
This is a research study to look at vitamin D deficiency (low levels) in men and women with HIV. As part of your regular medical care, you will be screened for vitamin D deficiency. If your levels are low, and you choose to start using vitamin D supplements, the investigators would like to take some blood before and after you start using vitamin D to see how this affects your levels of HIV, T cells, cholesterol, and other blood levels. The investigators will provide you with vitamin D supplements for the first 24 weeks (6 months) of the study. If you and your physician decide that you should continue taking vitamin D supplements after that time, you will be responsible for purchasing your own vitamin D supplements.

Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
  • Vitamin D Deficiency
  • HIV
Dietary Supplement: Vitamin D
50,000 IU vitamin D3 twice weekly for 5 weeks, followed by 2000 IU daily maintenance supplementation to complete 12 weeks. At the end of the 12-week period, 25(OH)D levels will be checked. If the subject is still deficient, he/she may undergo a second period of supplementation (at the discretion of their provider) to complete a total of 24 weeks. After 24 weeks, we anticipate all subjects will be kept on daily maintenance supplementation by their primary physicians.
  • No Intervention: Vitamin D Sufficient
    HIV-infected men and women with HIV-1 viral load <200 copies/mL on stable ART and 25(OH)D level ≥30ng/mL receive no intervention.
  • Experimental: Vitamin D Insufficient
    HIV-infected men and women with HIV-1 viral load <200 copies /mL on stable ART and 25(OH)D level <30ng/mL receive 50,000 IU twice weekly for 5 weeks followed by 2000 IU daily to complete 12 weeks.
    Intervention: Dietary Supplement: Vitamin D

  • Subjects must receive primary HIV care at the UCLA CARE center.
  • Subjects must be undergoing screening for vitamin D deficiency by their primary care provider at the time of study entry, or have undergone vitamin D screening in the 90 days prior to consent without yet initiating vitamin D supplementation (for insufficient subjects).
  • Ability and willingness of subject to provide informed consent

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Use of vitamin D supplementation (not including 400 IU daily, the amount in a standard multivitamin) at the time of screening.
  • HIV-infected subjects not on ART.
