Preterm infants develop reduced bone mass and fragility fractures. Nevertheless, normal ranges in preterm infants are poorly defined for concentrations of vitamin D; its isomers (C3α-epimer of 25(OH)D3) and metabolites (24, 25(OH)2D3, 1, 24(OH)2D); and other mineral-regulating hormones, including FGF23 in both intact (iFRG23) and inactive (C- terminal) forms.Objective: To clarify normal concentrations of minerals and hormones in healthy, preterm inf...
