  • Vitamin D deficiency is common in Australia, affecting nearly one-third of adults aged over 25 years.
  • The main source of vitamin D for Australians is exposure to sunlight. Thus, serum levels of vitamin D vary according to the season and are lower at the end of winter.
  • 'A great deal of the population suffers from vitamin D deficiency, especially during winter months'.
