Screening for Vitamin D Deficiency in Adults: U.S. Preventive Services Task Force Recommendation Statement

Michael L LeFevre et al. Ann Intern Med. .

Abstract

Description: New USPSTF recommendation on screening for vitamin D deficiency in adults.

Methods: The USPSTF reviewed the evidence on screening for and treatment of vitamin D deficiency, including the benefits and harms of screening and early treatment.

Population: This recommendation applies to community-dwelling, nonpregnant adults aged 18 years or older who are seen in primary care settings and are not known to have signs or symptoms of vitamin D deficiency or conditions for which vitamin D treatment is recommended.

Recommendation: The USPSTF concludes that the current evidence is insufficient to assess the balance of benefits and harms of screening for vitamin D deficiency in asymptomatic adults. (I statement).
