Abstract

Context: Vitamin D "insufficiency" and "deficiency" are defined as serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D] levels <75 and <30 nmol/L, respectively. We aimed to determine whether these values signal hypocalcemia and hypophosphatemia, secondary hyperparathyroidism, high bone remodeling, low areal bone mineral density (aBMD), microstructural deterioration, or reduced matrix mineralization density (MMD) and so suggest whether bone fragility is present. Methods: Concentrations of 25(OH)D, calcium, phosphate, creatinine, and parathyroid hormone (PTH) were measured in 11,855 participants. Serum C-terminal telopeptide of type 1 collagen, procollagen type 1 N-terminal propeptide (P1NP), aBMD, and distal ..
