A few years ago our team and several others, and also NIH, recognized that that vitamin D needs varied with ethnicity. African Americans have lower levels of vitamin D but better bone heath, Non-Hispanic white folks needed a slightly higher level of vitamin D, and Hispanics were somewhere in between. Accordingly, recommendations for vitamin D therapy must be related to ethnicity.
