This review of many sarcopenia studies has no abstract

  • Examined exercise and/or Vitamin D
  • Study found that starting vitamin D supplementation before exercise was best
  • VitaminDWiki believes that there is little point in the exercise before Vitamin D levels are restored
    Maintenance dose of vitamin D would require 3-4 months
    Load dose of vitamin D would require < 2 weeks
