OSTEOPOROSIS-SUPPLEMENTATION

1. For postmenopausal women, the common practice of supplementation with a combination of I ,000 mg of calcium, and 400 1U of vitamin D was found to have no effect on the incidence of fractures.

2. Supplementation at this level was found to increase a woman's risk of developing kidney stones.

3. Vitamin D does appear to play a role in preventing falls in the elderly.
