Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is It is published monthly.

Abstract

Aim: We aimed to reveal the effects of reduced exposure to sunlight and insufficient nutrition due to urbanization and altered cultural life on Vitamin D levels in medical students.
Materials and Methods: A hundred (56 female, 44 male) first year medical students were included in our study. A vitamin D screening form, which included 16 questions, was used to obtain data regarding medical students’ genetic, nutrition and cultural life.
Results: Out of 100 medical students, 25 hydroxyl vit- D3 levels was below 5 ng/ml in 10%, 5-10 ng/ml in 10%, 10-20 ng/ml in 30%, 20-30 ng/ml in 40% and above 30 ng/ml in 10% medical students. While it has been found out that urbanization causes vitamin D deficiency and insufficiency in both females and males by negatively affecting sunlight exposure and nutrition, females have less sunlight exposure and their vitamin D levels are lesser when compared with males.
Conclusions: In conclusion, urbanization decreases exposure to sunlight and changes nutritional habits and forms a basis for vitamin D deficiency. So, this shows that lack of vitamin D, which is a major cause of bone fractures in older ages, is actually mainly seen in younger ages.
Keywords: Vitamin D; Sunlight; Nutrition; Cultural Life; Aging.
