400 IU of vitamin D does not prevent fractures – US Preventive Services – April 2018

Vitamin D, Calcium, or Combined Supplementation for the Primary Prevention of Fractures in Community-Dwelling Adults

US Preventive Services Task Force Evidence Report, April 17, 2018
Evidence Report and Systematic Review for the US Preventive Services Task Force
Leila C. Kahwati, MD, MPH1,2; Rachel Palmieri Weber, PhD1,3; Huiling Pan, BA1,2; et al Margaret Gourlay, MD, MPH1,4; Erin LeBlanc, MD, MPH5; Manny Coker-Schwimmer, MPH1,3; Meera Viswanathan, PhD1,2

They narrowed the analysis of Vitamin D in preventing fractures to just 4 studies

1 study used 300 IU – far too little
1 study used 400 IU – far too little
1 study used 100,000 IU every 3 months (both too little and too infrequent)
1 study used 100,000 IU monthly – the only study which had the possibility of reducing fractures

I could not understand why JAMA continues to publish such trash. - Henry Lahore, founder of VitaminDWiki
Perhaps they want to save Osteoporosis jobs
They do not want to experience the job loss which occured in Australia 5 years before - see the following
