Vitamin D, part 3 of a 3 part series – Pregnancy & Infancy. In Australia, between one-quarter and one-half of pregnant women have a mild vitamin D deficiency, which we defined as less than 50 nanomoles per litre. Now babies born to women with vitamin D deficiency are at a greater risk of themselves having a vitamin D deficiency. How can we identify women at risk, and what can we do to help our patients….
Vitamin D, part 1 of a 3 part series –Childhood & Adolescence. Vitamin D deficiency does occur during childhood and adolescence and particularly in children that may have dark skin pigmentation or those that cover up for cultural reasons. Pharmacists need to be aware of the potential symptoms of vitamin D deficiency, and what to do if they suspect it, as the first two decades of life really are a critical window to optimise the bone bank, and reduce fracture risk later on in life.
Vitamin D, part 2 of a 3 part series – Adulthood & Older Age. Vitamin D is an important factor, not only for bone health, but also for muscle health. In older age the aim is to try to minimise bone loss, improve muscle function and ultimately help older people to remain independent for longer. Listen to this interview on how to diagnose, treat and manage vitamin D deficiency in your older patients.
