Abstract

BACKGROUND:

To determine the effect of vitamin D binding protein (DBP) genotypes on 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D] changes with vitamin D supplements, we studied 98 adults receiving 600 or 4000 IU/d vitamin D(3) for one year.

METHODS:

The DBP functional variant, T436K, was genotyped by polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP).

RESULTS:

Mean 25(OH)D increases were 97% for TT (n=48), 151% for TK (n=31) and 307% (n=6) for KK genotypes (p=.004).

CONCLUSIONS:

As with baseline 25(OH)D, T436K genotype predicts 25(OH)D changes after long-term vitamin D supplementation.
