Does screening and treating vitamin D deficiency improve outcomes in men? Evidence-Based Answer: Vitamin D supplementation probably reduces mortality and falls in men (SOR: B, extrapolated from mixed-sex meta-analyses). Higher vitamin D levels may contribute to increased physical performance in men (SOR: C, extrapolated from a mixed-sex cohort study). Routine screening for vitamin D deficiency is not recommended (SOR: B, evidence-based guideline).
