Abstract

BACKGROUND: Inadequate sun exposure and dietary vitamin D intake can result in vitamin D
insufficiency. However, limited data are available on actual vitamin D status and predictors in
healthy individuals in different regions and by season.
METHODS: We compared vitamin D status [25-hydroxyvitamin D; 25(OH)D] in people < 60 years
of age using data from cross-sectional studies of three regions across Australia: southeast
Queensland (27°S; 167 females and 211 males), Geelong region (38°S; 561 females), and
Tasmania (43°S; 432 females and 298 males).
