Hypovitaminosis D and decreased bone mineral density in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis

This study assessed the bone health of patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and found that the serum concentration of the 25-hydroxyvitamin D form of vitamin D was significantly lower in patients than in controls.
Dietary intake of vitamin D was below the recommended level in 10 of the 11 ALS patients studied.
