Vitamin D deficiency in pregnancy and early childhood


    Vitamin D is actually not a vitamin but a strong steroid hormone that acts on almost every cell in the body and participates in numerous vital processes. Vitamin D acts as an inducer and repressor of various genes and regulates more than 500 genes’ expressions. Vitamin D deficiency increases the risk of preeclampsia, preterm delivery, cesarean section, spontaneous abortion, low birth weight and gestational diabetes for pregnant women. And for infants vitamin D deficiency may have even worse results. Infants whose mother’s had a severe vitamin D deficiency may have inborn rickets. The link between vitamin D deficiency and rickets is very clear and has been known for a long time. However very recent data shows us that vitamin D deficiency during pregnancy and early childhood may be far more dangerous than we could imagine.
