260.109 Vitamin D3 Supplementation


260.109 Vitamin D3 Supplementation: The Texas Medical Association supports continued research on vitamin D, particularly long-term studies that address the benefits, adverse outcomes, and potential confounders across all life-stage groups. TMA supports monitoring of the evolving science of vitamin D and its impact on health and the development of resources for physicians about vitamin D for patients. TMA encourages physicians to consider measuring the serum concentration of 25-hydroxyvitamin D in patients at risk of vitamin D deficiency and counsel those with deficient or insufficient levels on ways to improve their vitamin D status.
