Vitamin D3 regulates the uptake of calcium from the intestinal tract, and enhances bone growth.  Vitamin D3 deficiency causes many health problems such autoimmune diseases, Crohn's disease, diabetes, inflammation, asthma, hypertension, and cancer. VitaminD3 (Cholecalciferol) deficiency has been documented as a persistent problem among adults, children, and elderly persons in most of the countries especially during winter. One third of the worldwide population suffers from VitaminD3 hypovitaminosis due to inadequate exposure to sunlight. Our primary objective of this study was to determine hypothesis of the prevalence of vitamin D3 deficiency among Sulaimani region population, the secondary objective was to determine whether a gender variation affect in serum levels of vitaminD3. Last, we sought to identify prevalence of vitaminD3 deficiency within different age. For this aim 3520 cases from Central Laboratory of disease analysis in Sulaimani enrolled from 26-November-2014 to 24-May-2017. Serum level of Vitamin D3 (1,25-dihydroxy vitamin D) was determined by Cobas e411 (Hitachi- Germany) technique. To assess a basis for interpretation of potential relationships in our results statistical analyses were conducted with a commercially available software program Graph Pad Prism 6.0 (WI, USA).
