Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


[automatically translated] It is recommended screening for the deficiency assessment of vitamin D only in individuals at risk. The combination of Vitamin D and calcium reduces the risk, albeit in a mild, hip fracture, in particular in high risk populations (institutionalized patients). Vitamin D alone is not effective in preventing the fracture of anca.L'associazione of Vitamin D and calcium significantly reduces the incidence of new nonvertebral fractures and to a lesser extent of new vertebral fractures. The Vitamin D with or without calcium supplementation is effective in improving the function and strength of the proximal muscles by reducing the risk of falling.
