Serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25-OHD) concentrations are thought to accurately reflect vitamin D stores, and vitamin D deficiency causes secondary hyperparathyroidism, irreversible bone loss, and increased risk of fracture. Recent studies suggest that decrease of serum 25-OHD level in mothers could increase the risk of preeclampsia, cesarean section, and craniotabes. Furthermore, this deficiency may affect bone mass and the incidence of neuromuscular diseases of their children in the future. In… CONTINUE READING
