Résumé
Introduction: 700 to 1000 UI Vitamin D/day prevent 20% of fall and fracture. Higher dosage could prevent other health problems, such as immune diseases. Adherence to oral daily vitamin D supplementation is low. There is no guideline on how to supplement patients with rheumatic diseases. We evaluated if 1-2 dose(s) of 300'000 UI oral vitamin D3 was enough to reach an optimal level of 25-OH vitamin D in late winter in patients with insufficiency.
Methods: During November 2009 (M0) patients attending our Rheumatology Outpatient Clinic had a blood test to measure 25-OH vitamin D. Results were classified as: deficiency <10µg/l, insufficiency 10µg/l to 30µg/l and normal >30µg/l. Patients on daily oral vitamin D3 or who received a single high dose of vitamin D3 in the last 6 months and patients with deficiency or normal results were excluded.
Patients included received a single dose of 300'000 IU of oral vitamin D3 and were asked to come back for a blood test for 25-OH vitamin D after 3 (M3) and 6 months (M6). If they were still insufficient at M3, they received a second high dose of 300'000 IU of oral vitamin D3.
Results: 292 patients had their level of 25-OH vitamin D determined at M0. 141 patients (70% women) had vitamin D insufficiency (18.5µg/l (10.2-29.1)) and received a prescription for a single dose of 300'000 IU of oral vitamin D3. Men and women were not statistically different in term of age and 25-OH vitamin D level at M0.
124/141 (88%) patients had a blood test at M3. 2/124 (2%) had deficiency (8.1µg/l (7.5-8.7)), 50/124 (40%) normal results (36.7µg/l (30.5-56.5)). 58% (72/124) were insufficient (23.6µg/l (13.8-29.8)) and received a second prescription for 300'000 IU of oral vitamin D3.
Of the 50/124 patients who had normal results at M3 and did not receive a second prescription, 36 (72%) had a test at M6. 47% (17/36) had normal results (34.8µg/l (30.3-42.8)), 53% (19/36) were insufficient (25.6µg/l (15.2-29.9)).
Out of the 54/72 (75%) patients who received a second prescription, 28/54 (52%) had insufficiency (23.2µg/l (12.8-28.7)) and 26/54 (48%) had normal results (33.8µg/l (30.0-43.7)) at M 6.
Discussion: This real life study has shown that one or two oral bolus of 300'000 IU of vitamin D3 in autumn and winter was not enough to completely correct hypovitaminosis D but was a good way of preventing a nadir of 25-OH vitamin D usually observed in spring in a Swiss rheumatologic population.
