The aim of this investigation was to determine 25-hydroxy vitamin D levels in soldiers with suspected lower extremity stress fractures and determine fracture predictors. Patients with femoral neck fractures and tibial shaft fractures had significantly lower BMI than those with foot and ankle fractures. Patients with foot and ankle fractures had significantly lower 25D blood pressures than those with femoral shaft fractures. There was no correlation between age, vitamin D level or BMI, as well as vitamin D level or vitamin D level, as shown by the table below. Conclusion Overall, 74% of patients in military education with lower extremity stress fractures had inadequate or deficient levels of 25D, exposing a persistent point of worry in this population. Patients with femoral neck and tibial shaft strain fractures had a significantly lower BMI than patients with foot and ankle stress fractures. This means that BMI may play a role in predicting fracture location in stressed fracture-prone patients.
