Table 6 Adjusted odds ratios for the association between aeroallergen sensitization and serum 25(OH)D levels of < 10 ng/mL, 10 to < 20 ng/mL, and 20 to < 30 ng/mL compared with the reference group (≥ 30 ng/mL) according to the types of aeroallergen sensitization

From: Non-association between low vitamin d levels and aeroallergen-positivity evaluated using multiple allergen simultaneous test in Korean adults
