Prevalence of Vitamin D Insufficiency in Brazilian Adolescents - 0 views

    Prevalence of vitamin D insufficiency in Brazilian adolescents.
    Peters BS, dos Santos LC, Fisberg M, Wood RJ, Martini LA.
    Ann Nutr Metab. 2009;54(1):15-21. Epub 2009 Feb 5.
    PMID: 19194104
    DOI: 10.1159/000199454

    CONCLUSIONS: The present study suggests that even in a sunny climate like Brazil the prevalence of vitamin D insufficiency in adolescents is high. Most likely this is due to low intakes of vitamin D in this group. Due to the limited extent of natural dietary sources of vitamin D, a policy of vitamin D food fortification should be considered in the future, and in the meantime greater use of vitamin D supplements in this population group should be encouraged to provide the increased amounts of this essential nutrient for optimal health.
