Around 50% of the global population does not get enough vitamin D. It is the most underdiagnosed medical condition worldwide. Long-term or severe vitamin D deficiency can increase the risk of osteoporosis, as well as the frequency of falls and fractures. This module reviews the causes, risk factors, diagnosis and management of vitamin D deficiency, while simultaneously highlighting the use of high-dose vitamin D formulation in the treatment and prevention of the condition.
