As people age, their skin cannot synthesize vitamin D as efficiently and, to make matters worse, the kidney is less able to convert vitamin D to its active hormone form. Because of this “double whammy”, both men and women, age 50 and older, are believed to be at increased risk of developing vitamin D deficiency. It is estimated that as many as 30% to 40% of older adults with hip fractures are vitamin D insufficient. Therefore, older adults may benefit from supplemental vitamin D.
NOTE: research(May 2008), suggests that low vitamin D levels may be tied to more agressive forms of breast cancer. Testing your Vitamin D level is relatively easy with a simple blood test that your Doctor can order for you.
