UNLABELLED The prevalence of disturbed calcium homeostasis in adolescents with beta thalassemia major (T) varies among different populations. Moreover, the cholecalciferol uptake required to achieve or maintain any given serum 25-hydroxycholecalciferol level is not well known, particularly within ranges of the probable physiologic supply of the vitamin. OBJECTIVES The objectives of the study were to estimate the prevalence of abnormal calcium homeostasis in 40 adolescent thalassemic patients… CONTINUE READING
