  • Abstract A large body of data demonstrates a high prevalence worldwide of hypovitaminosis D in children and adolescents, at a critical time of bone mass accrual. Increasing evidence supports a deleterious effect of vitamin D insufficiency on musculoskeletal health in this age group based on cross-sectional studies, studies relating vitamin D to biochemical variables in the homeostatic pathway for vitamin D physiology (PTH, calcitriol, bone remodeling). Two recent randomized interventional… CONTINUE READING
