We evaluated the effect of serum Vitamin D level on bone mineral density in 270 women of reproductive age. Insufficiency and deficiency of vitamin D were found in 86.8% of women regardless of the season when the examination was performed. The DXA results showed that every 5th woman had a decreased BMD. Correlation analysis revealed a significant direct relationship between serum vitamin D level and BMD in women up to 40 years old (r=0,48, p=0,04), whereas in those over 40 years this relationship could not be seen. Additional studies are required for further assessment of vitamin D role in bone remodeling
