Title: Evaluating the relationship between 25(OH)vitamin D3 concentration Levels and selected geriatric assessment parameters.


Vitamin D3 deficiency is common among adults over 60 years of age.The aim of the study was to evaluate the relationship between the degree of 25(OH)vitamin D3 deficiency and selected geriatric assessment parameters: anthropometric parameters, results of intellectual and mood screening tests, results of scales assessing functional capacity, the occurrence of cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases and the coexistence of several chronic diseases in a population sample. The results were collected from 206 geriatric patients hospitalized at the City Hospital in Piekary Śląskie, Poland, between January and June 2013. All hospital admissions were planned to perform 25(OH)vitamin D3 concentration level testing and to assess the level of both functional and cognitive disorders using tests like the mini-mental state examination, the clock drawing test, the short version of geriatric depression scale, the activities of daily living scale, and the instrumental activities of daily living scale. The analysis of patients' data from the studied group was retrospective and non-interventional. The mean age was 78±7.4 years. All studied patients had significantly reduced serum concentration levels of 25(OH)vitamin D3. The older patients, with lower mean body weight, physical disability lasting three months, also, with cognitive, mood and functional impairment, with manifestation of neurodegenerative disease and without vitamin D3 supplementation had significantly reduced serum concentration levels of 25(OH)vitamin D3 than patients without cognitive and functional impairment.
