Vitamin D helps to balance the levels of calcium and phosphorus to maintain proper bone structure. It is also involved in essential biological roles and displays a wide spectrum of potential benefits in the human body. Since there are many types of fractures that occur at specific ages and due to different circumstances, the influence of vitamin D on the frequency of a particular fracture may differ.
Thus, the authors investigated the possible preventive effect of vitamin D on the risks of

  • vertebral fractures,
  • hip fractures,
  • stress fractures and
  • pediatric fractures.

Additional aspects of vitamin D, especially on recuperation after injures and its impact on the severity of particular fractures, were also discussed.
It was suggested that vitamin D supplementation may contribute to a reduction in hip fracture risk due to

  1. reduced bone turnover,
  2. decreased frequency of falls and
  3. improved muscle function.

Furthermore, vitamin D appears to

  • lower the risk of stress fractures in athletes and military recruits.

Due to a nonunified protocol design, presented investigations show inconsistencies between vitamin D supplementation and a decreased risk of vertebral fractures. However, a vitamin D preventive effect on pediatric fractures seems to be implausible.
