The average vitamin D level was 20 ng/ml (50 nmol/L), with 45% below 20 ng/ml and 20% below 10 ng/ml (25 nmol/L).
Help Prevent Vitamin D Deficiency!
Projects like this make it very clear that vitamin D deficiency is still a MAJOR PROBLEM! With vitamin D being the “Sunshine Vitamin,” and winter coming to an end, vitamin D deficiency is likely at its worst. Be sure to measure vitamin D levels now and correct existing deficiency immediately. A panel of 48 international vitamin D researchers and scientists recommend a vitamin D level between 40-60 ng/ml (100-150 nmol/L), yet only 2% of this group had a level within that range. Enrolling into the D*action project gives everyone a chance to measure their vitamin D levels from home while contributing to life-changing research.
Vitamin D is just one of the MANY health benefits provided by sunshine exposure. Learn more here.
Help Fund the North Dakota Project
Help us expand this project to include testing for more participants, follow-up testing, and vitamin D education for this population and their public health officials.
