Description:

Vitamin D3 deficiency in children can manifest as rickets (it is the most common cause of nutritional rickets), which presents as bowing of the legs. Vitamin D3 deficiency in adults results in osteomalacia, which presents as a poorly mineralized skeletal matrix.

1000 D (Vitamin D3) is important for calcium homeostasis and for optimal skeletal health. The major function of 1000 D (Vitamin D3) is to increase the efficiency of calcium absorption from the small intestine as maximum calcium absorption occurs there.

1000 D (Vitamin D3) also enhances the absorption of phosphorous from the distal small bowel. Adequate calcium and phosphorous absorption from the intestine is important for proper mineralization of the bone. The second major function of 1000 D (Vitamin D3) is involvement in the maturation of osteoclasts, which resorb calcium from the bones

Epidemiology:

Vitamin D3 production in the skin declines with advancing age, making elderly populations more dependent on dietary Vitamin D3, for the average older person, higher dietary intake of Vitamin D3 may be required to achieve optimal serum levels.

However Vitamin D3 insufficiency is not restricted to the elderly and hospitalized population; several studies have found a high prevalence of Vitamin D3 deficiency among healthy, young adults. This deficiency is of equal proportions worldwide.

Prognosis:

The treatment of Vitamin D3 insufficiency can decrease the risk of hip and non-vertebral fractures.

Vitamin D3 supplementation has been associated with a reduction in falls and improved muscle strength in the elderly.

Indication:

1000 D (Vitamin D3) helps calcium absorption – a diet deficient in calcium can lead to osteoporosis  in later life. 1000 D (Vitamin D3) is recommended for adults and children (who can swallow) with low Vitamin D3 levels.

Warning:

Vitamin supplements should not replace a balanced diet. If symptoms persist, consult your healthcare practitioner
