Deficiency of vitamin D and its etiology, pathophysiology, treatment and management

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin utilized by the body for development and maintenance by increasing the absorption of calcium, magnesium, and phosphate. A circulating level of 25-hydroxyvitamin D more prominent than 30 ng/mL is expected to keep a solid degree of vitamin D. Lack of vitamin D can give rise to a variety of issues, most remarkably rickets in kids and osteoporosis in adults. The stronghold of milk with vitamin D during the 1930s was successful in annihilating rickets in the world. In any case, vitamin D lack is currently more pervasive than in the past and ought to be checked in high-risk populations. Many clashing investigations are presently showing a relationship between lack of vitamin D and malignant growth, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, autoimmune diseases, and depression.
