This study is aiming assess the prevalence of Vit D Insufficiency and Deficiency among Adult cohort in Dubai, To study the epidemiological profile and associated factors, study methodology was a cross sectional study carried out on ( 80 ) Adult patient, age rage( 15-70 y ) randomly selected from Vitamin deficiency and insufficiency cohorts registered and attending primary health care facilities at Dubai health authority, full social- demographic and clinical data has been collected through data collection interview questionnaire, patients follow up has been extended for up to one year in relation to lab investigation follow up, vitamin D therapy, health education, life style intervention and physical examination ( operational definitions of variables, inclusion-exclusion criteria, scale of measurement and ethical considerations has been addressed properly throughout the research course. The result showed by the study revealed that 8.75% of Vitamin D Deficiency and 2.5% of vitamin D insufficiency cohort shown an association with chronic illness, 37.75% deficiency and 13.75% insufficiency showed associated with the cohort life style (lack of Direct Exposure to sun), 35% of Vitamin deficiency and 15% with vitamin insufficiency showed association with quality of dietary intake. The study revealed that 5% of the adults with vitamin deficiency where having hypertension, 2.5% diabetes, 2.5% dyslipidemia, 2.5% hypothyroidism ad 2.5% with asthma, while Vitamin D insufficiency associated with hypertension 8.75%, diabetes 5%, dyslipidemia 6.25%, hypothyroidism 5% and asthma 3.75%). About 30% of total abnormal serum vitamin D were deficiency <10 and 70% were shown insufficiency 10-30 32.5% of abnormal serum vitamin D were male and 67.5% were females. vitamin D deficiency and insufficiency studied sample about 30% given Vitamin D supplement 5000 IU week for three month cycle to be re evaluated again and 70% were given 100 IU vitamin D supplement daily for three month cycle to be re evaluated again by serum vitamin D level). The study reflect that in the clinical assessment and follow up protocol applied about 30% of the total sample were investigated with serum calcium, yet 70% serum calcium were not carried out for them and only 27.5% of the total number of patient enrolled in the study were followed up with repeated serum vitamin d after each treatment cycle, while 74.5% were not considered for serum vitamin d monitoring.
