Vitamin D deficiency is an important health problem in the general population and in patients with chronic hepatitis C (CHC), in which the prevalence of vitamin D deficit ranges between 46% and 92%.1 In addition to its crucial role in the regulation of bone homeostasis, vitamin D has a broad range of nonskeletal effects including cardiovascular, immunomodulatory, metabolic, neuro‐muscular and brain functions.2 Recently, several studies showed that vitamin D deficiency is associated with worsening of physical and mental functions,2 thus affecting negatively quality of life in patients with chronic diseases such as chronic kidney disease3 and rheumatoid arthritis.4

Abstract

Vitamin D deficiency is an important health problem in the general population and in patients with chronic hepatitis C (CHC), in which the prevalence of vitamin D deficit ranges between 46% and 92%.1 In addition to its crucial role in the regulation of bone homeostasis, vitamin D has a broad range of nonskeletal effects including cardiovascular, immunomodulatory, metabolic, neuro‐muscular and brain functions.2 Recently, several studies showed that vitamin D deficiency is associated with worsening of physical and mental functions,2 thus affecting negatively quality of life in patients with chronic diseases such as chronic kidney disease3 and rheumatoid arthritis.4
