Aim: To compare serum calcium, serum phosphorous and serum 25 (OH)D2 levels in sedentary less exposed to sun and heavy working females exposed to sun.
Materials and methods: The study was performed in the Biochemistry Department, Subharti Medical College, Swami Vivekananda Subharti University, Meerut. 50 females, 21-50 years of age as labourers (control); 50 other healthy females of same age group sedentary ( cases) were included. All the samples were processed in related automatic machines Vidas and Vitros 350/Fusion by Biomerieux.
Results: In our study we found that the levels of serum calcium were 7.25 ± 1.14, serum phosphorous 3.99 ± 0.69 and vitamin D 8.39 ± 2.86 in cases and levels of serum calcium were 8.72 ± 0.58, phosphorous 4.44 ± 0.59 and vitamin D 32.51 ± 6.92 in the control group respectively.
Conclusion: Our study perceived that the level of serum Calcium, Phosphorus and vitamin D were significantly decreased in females, less exposed to sun as compared to heavy working females exposed to sun. Thus we could conclude that the maintenance of normal levels of vitamin D is contributed not only by adequate exposure to sun light and exercise, but also to the dietary habits.
