·Of 127 women enrolled, 92 (72%) had insufficient vit D (median, 18ng/ml) and 35 (28%) had sufficient vit D (median, 39ng/ml) table 1.
·At 6 months, 54% of women with insufficient vitD had been prescribed vit D by their PCPs and 97% took the prescribed vit D.
·Vit D prescriptions were more commonly prescribed to older women (p=0.058), those on HAART (p=0.002) and those with undetectable HIVRNA (p<0.001).
·29% of the women with insufficient vit D at baseline achieved sufficient vit D at 6 months. In multivariable analysis, factors significantly associated with vit D≥30 at 6 months are shown in table 2.
·Changes in PTH and inflammatory markers by vitamin D supplementation status are shown in table 3.
