AnemiaPrevention

There do not appear to be studies that reported clinical trials of preventing anemia with vitamin D.

However, based on results for other diseases as well as for the PTH-serum 25(OH)D relation, (PTH levels decrease as 25(OH)D increases up to about 30 ng/ml, then changes slowly)1, it would be reasonable to keep serum 25(OH)D levels above 30 ng/ml.
