Osteopatías Me´dicas, Hosp. de Clínicas, UBA, Bromatología, UN Patagonia Although it is frequent in elderly people, young adults may also be at risk of having inadequate vitamin D status. 25hydroxyvitamin D (25HOD) was evaluated in winter and summer to observe whether changes in vitamin D status havean effect on PTH and bone markers. Healthy women (45-S) (10 pre and 10 postmenopausal) were studied in March and August. In fasting blood 25HOD (ng/ml) (Diasorin), PTHmm (pg/ml), bone alkaline phosphatase (b-ALP: UI/L), collagen type I N-terminal propeptide (P1NP: ng/ml) and ?-CTX (ng/L) (Elecsys) and in urine CTX (Ag/mmol creatinine) (Crosslaps, Osteometer Bio Tech) were evaluated. Mean T SD winter and summer values of pre and postmenopausal womenrespectively were: 25HOD: 14.7 T 5.6, 26.5 T 10.6*, 12.4 T 4.0, 25.4 T 10.0*; PTH: 46.0 T 9.0, 26.5 T 7.0*, 46.3 T 10.6, 35.2 T 15.0; b-ALP: 56 T 11, 63 T 10, 63 T 17, 78 T 17#, P1NP: 55.0 T 12.1, 46.2 T 10.6, 59.4 T 16.6, 63.6 T 20.7#-CTX: 210.2 T 49.9, 213.2 T 89.5, 213.2 T 89.5, 356.6 T 156.5#; urinary CTX: 188.9 T 65.6, 146.1 T 48.7, 234.9 T 110.7, 232.4 T 98.5#. (*) P < 0.05: summer vs. winter within the same group, (#) P < 0.05: pre vs. postmenopausal in the same season. Both groups had vitamin D insufficiency in winter and only premenopausal women presented a significant increment in PTH, without an increase in bone markers. Although 25HOD increased approximately 95% in summer, their vitamin D status was still deficient. Only bone markers were significantly different between pre- and postmenopausal summer values. Conclusion: vitamin D insufficiency in winter was still deficient in summer. Grant from Bs Aires University M033. doi:10.1016/j.bone.2006.02.029
