With a confirmed case of COVID-19 in our community, we will be rescheduling all non-urgent visits until further notice. We will be offering phone visits only for matters that can be reviewed by phone. If you require an urgent appointment, please call to speak with a staff member. At that time, you will be screened for COVID-19 exposure. We will give you directions on what to do next if you screen positive. Thank you for your cooperation.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D, as well as calcium, is essential to preventing osteoporosis and may reduce other health risks. While exposure to sunlight provides vitamin D, Canadians are at risk of seasonal vitamin D deficiency because winter does not contain enough ultraviolet B for vitamin D production.  Supplements are necessary, as dietary intake is not enough.

Osteoporosis Canada’s guidelines (July 2010) recommend daily supplements of 400 to 1000 IU for adults under age 50 without osteoporosis or conditions affecting vitamin D absorption. For adults over 50, supplements of between 800 and 2000 IU are recommended. A daily supplement of 800 IU should be regarded as a minimum dose for all adults with osteoporosis.

At Sudbury District Nurse Practitioner Clinics, we have staff, including a registered dietician, who can help you understand vitamin D and how much supplementation you require.
