Abstract

Rosemary Jenson*, Rosmin Jacob, Dr. K. Krishnakumar, Juno Joy and Shilga Francis

Abstract

Vitamin D is very important for bone to facilitate the absorption of calcium from the diet. Serum 25(OH)D is best indicator for status,and is contributed by the skin and obtained by dietary intake. The reasons for low level of vitamin D in elderly women are possibly due to inadequate exposure to sunlight and or poor diet. In addition ageing decreases the skin capacity to produce vitamin D. There is also hydroxylation of vitamin D and in responsiveness to the intestinal mucosa to circulating vitamin D level in elderly women. Vitamin D deficiency leads poor calcium absorption, high serum PTH concentration and accelerated bone mass. This article reveals the role of Vitamin D in postmenopausal women.

Keywords: Vitamin D, Postmenopausal woman.
