    Annual intramuscular injection of a megadose of cholecalciferol for treatment of vitamin D deficiency: efficacy and safety data. Diamond TH, Ho KW, Rohl PG, Meerkin M.
    Med J Aust. 2005 Jul 4;183(1):10-2.
    PMID: 15992330

    Conclusions: Once-yearly intramuscular cholecalciferol injection (600 000 IU) is effective therapy for vitamin D deficiency. While this therapy appears to be safe, the potential for developing hypercalciuria needs to be examined in a large randomised controlled trial.

    Serum vitamin D level after an annual intramuscular injection of ergocalciferol.
    Heikinheimo RJ, Haavisto MV, Harju EJ, Inkovaara JA, Kaarela RH, Kolho LA, Rajala SA.
    Calcif Tissue Int. 1991;49 Suppl:S87.
    PMID: 1933611

    An annual intramuscular injection of ergocalciferol (150,000 IU) normalized low serum (25(OH)D concentrations in elderly people for 1 year. The treatment had a slight effect on serum 24,25(OH)2D levels but no effect on 1,25(OH)2D levels.

    Vitamin D supplementation improves neuromuscular function in older people who fall.
    Dhesi JK, Jackson SH, Bearne LM, Moniz C, Hurley MV, Swift CG, Allain TJ.
    Age Ageing. 2004 Nov;33(6):589-95.
    PMID: 15501836
    doi:10.1093/ageing/afh20 9

    CONCLUSIONS: vitamin D supplementation, in fallers with vitamin D insufficiency, has a significant beneficial effect on functional performance, reaction time and balance, but not muscle strength. This suggests that vitamin D supplementation improves neuromuscular or neuroprotective function, which may in part explain the mechanism whereby vitamin D reduces falls and fractures.
