Final Recommendation Statement: Vitamin D, Calcium, or Combined Supplementation for the Primary Prevention of Fractures in Community-Dwelling Adults

April 17, 2018 – The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force released today a final recommendation statement on vitamin D, calcium, or combined supplementation for the primary prevention of fractures in community-dwelling adults. The Task Force found insufficient evidence to recommend for or against vitamin D and calcium supplementation to prevent fractures in most adults at higher doses and recommends against them at lower doses. To view the recommendation and the evidence on which it is based, please go here. The final recommendation statement can also be found in the April 17 online issue of JAMA.

Current as of: December 2018
