Dietary reference intakes for vitamin D are based solely on the dietary intake that is adequate to prevent bone disease (i.e., rickets or osteomalacia), but there is overwhelming evidence that vitamin D is essential in maintaining overall cellular health and plays a role in other diseases. Based on this research, some researchers are calling for a revision of the recommended intakes for vitamin D. Experts propose that the recommended daily allowance of vitamin D be increased to 1,000 IUs per day during times when sun exposure is insufficient. Note that the 2005 U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans now recommends increased intake of vitamin D of 1,000 IU for at-risk populations - older adults, people with dark skin and people exposed to insufficient UVB light. This is not yet reflected in the current dietary reference intakes for vitamin D.
