Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin that is found in food and can also be made in your body after exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun.
Sunshine is a significant source of vitamin D because UV rays from sunlight trigger vitamin D synthesis in the skin. This important vitamin is often included in combination calcium supplements as it helps the body to absorb calcium. The major biologic function of vitamin D is to maintain normal blood levels of calcium and phosphorus.
By promoting calcium absorption, vitamin D helps to form and maintain strong bones. Vitamin D also works in concert with a number of other vitamins, minerals, and hormones to promote bone mineralization. Without vitamin D, bones can become thin, brittle, or misshapen. Vitamin D sufficiency prevents rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults, two forms of skeletal diseases that weaken bones.
In Children, vitamin D deficiency leads to Rickets. Rickets is a bone disease characterized by a failure to properly mineralize bone tissue. Rickets results in soft bones and skeletal deformities. The most common causes of rickets are vitamin D deficiency from a vitamin D deficient diet, lack of sunlight, or both.
In adults, vitamin D deficiency can lead to osteomalacia, which results in muscular weakness in addition to weak bones. Symptoms of bone pain and muscle weakness may indicate vitamin D deficiency, but symptoms may be subtle and go undetected in the initial stages. A deficiency is accurately diagnosed by measuring the concentration of a specific form of vitamin D in blood.
