Introduction & Objective: Vitamin D deficiency is one of the most common deficiencies in vitamins and is widely demanded by physicians to assess the risk of softness and bone fracture. Calcium is an analyte whose metabolism is also influenced by vitamin D3 and is also considered by researchers as a result of numerous metabolic roles in medical research. The aim of this study was to evaluate the status of vitamin D3 and calcium in a community and evaluate the correlation between these two indicators.
Materials and Methods: This study was conducted over a period of three consecutive years. Serum vitamin D3 and serum calcium concentrations were evaluated using immunoassay and biochemical assays, respectively, by medical diagnostic laboratory. All age groups and both sexes were evaluated in this study. Descriptive statistics of central indicators and dispersion, data distribution and correlation between variables were evaluated using SPSS Ver.24 and MedCalc software. The significance level of the analytical tests was 95%.
Results: The mean age of 33377 patients was 27.76 years (1 day to 96 years), the concentration of calcium was 9.8 ± 0.6 mg, and the 25-hydroxyvitamin D3 levels were equal to 94 / 16 ± 67.24 ng / ml. The amount of vitamin D3 in individuals for up to 15 years was 37.56 ± 20.3. Also, there was a significant correlation between vitamin D3 and calcium, but weak (R = 203.0). In this study, it was found that with increasing age of individuals up to 15 years, their vitamin D3 levels decreased, and this decrease was moderate and significant with age. Distribution of calcium and vitamin D3 data in the statistical population follows an abnormal pattern (P = 0.000). The prevalence of D3 hypovitaminosis in the subjects under 16 years of age is 40.36%.
Conclusion: The results of this study indicated that variable vitamin D3 had no normal distribution in the population and hypovitaminosis D3 in Iran was high. Therefore, it is necessary to carry out similar studies to provide the evidence needed for a stronger citation. Also, doing the meta-analysis can be a great help.
