Vitamin D deficiency is a major health problem in populations of all ages and a cause of many diseases. It is particularly common in elderly people and can lead to the deterioration of health status. In a pilot study, we determined vitamin D levels in 80 people over 50 years of age in the north-eastern Slovenia and examined the risk factors associated with vitamin D deficiency. Low plasma vitamin D levels were associated with some medical conditions in the study population and, in particular, with a higher susceptibility to COVID-19.
