Based on the currently accepted minimum levels of vitamin D in "healthy" people, approximately 80 percent of persons with MCDD are vitamin D insufficient [serum 25(OH)D levels below 30 ng/mL], and more than 50 percent are vitamin D deficient [serum 25(OH)D levels below 20 ng/mL].
However, for special populations, such as institutionalized persons, PIDs, those with MCDD, and anyone receiving certain medications, such as anti-epileptic or psychotropic agents, a minimum level of 40 ng/mL (100 nmol/L) with the optimal range between 40 to 60 ng/mL is recommended.
Therefore, there is no hazard in treating PIDD and MCDD using vitamin D dosages between 2,000 and 5,000 IU a day or 50,000 IU administered two to three times a month.
Consequentially, compared with the healthy population, people with MCDD have a higher incidence of osteomalacia, falls and fractures.
