Is vitamin D effective in preventing stress fractures? Evidence-based answer: Vitamin D supplementation with calcium likely reduces the risk of stress fractures by 20% in female military recruits (SOR: B, single RCT). There is a weak association with high vitamin D intake and reduced risk of stress fractures in adolescents (SOR: B, based on a single prospective cohort). Low serum 25-(OH) vitamin D levels are associated with an increased risk of stress fractures (no SOR given).
