Vitamin D status of Saudis. I : Effect of age, sex and living accommodation.
A survey of the vitamin D nutritional status in the udi population was conducted.
The study included males and females living in different regions in Saudi Arabia.
The age of the volunteers was from <6 years up to 90 years.
No significant difference was detected in the plasma levels of 25-hydroxy-viamin D (25-OHD) between overall children (16.5+-8.1 ng/ml), and overall adults (16.5+-7.8 ng/ml).
Male children, <6 years of age, have a significantly higher level than older subjects, whereas the female adolescents (age 13-18 years) and preschool children have the lowest plasma 25-OHD level in comparison with the other groups.
