Knowledge regarding the determination, measurement, and supplementation of vitamin D in skin of color patients is evolving. At this time, it is believed that the majority of the skin of color population in the United States is vitamin D insufficient, which is particularly concerning given the possible links to disease states. However, further supporting evidence of insufficiency is required given recent questions regarding genetics and the applicability of normal levels across racial and ethnic groups. Finally, it is important for healthcare providers treating skin of color patients to recognize, educate, and promote the investigation of issues regarding vitamin D insufficiency and deficiency.
