Tightrope walking: Using predictors of 25 (OH)D concentration based on multivariable linear regression to infer associations with health risks

Ding, Ning; Dear , Keith; Guo, Shu-Yu; Xiang, Fan; Lucas, Robyn


The debate on the causal association between vitamin D status, measured as serum concentration of 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25[OH]D), and various health outcomes warrants investigation in large-scale health surveys. Measuring the 25(OH)D concentration for each participant is not always feasible, because of the logistics of blood collection and the costs of vitamin D testing. To address this problem, past research has used predicted 25(OH)D concentration, based on multivariable linear regression, as...[Show more]
