Introduction: stroke is the most important brain disease. Stroke leads to a reduction in bone density, altered calcium homeostasis, and an increase in hip fractures. Some recent studies show effects of vitamin D on stroke and vice versa. The purpose of this study was to determine of serum vitamin D levels in patients with acute stroke.
Methods: In this cross-sectional study, we compared the serum 25-dihydroxyvitamin D levels of 44 patients with first-ever ischemic stroke with results obtained by measuring 44 healthy ambulant elderly subjects. Data were analyzed using T-test and ANOVA.
Results: patients in two groups were male and the rest were female. The average age of all patients in both groups were ±13.4. The mean of serum vitamin D in acute stroke was .1±6.33 and in control group was 4±5.28. There was no significant difference between the two groups on serum level of vitamin D. There was no significant difference between serum vitamin D with age and sex.
Conclusion: There was no difference in serum vitamin D in patients with acute stroke and controls.
