Introduction: Serum 25(OH)D concentrations for optimal bone metabolism in children is unknown. Only few data exist describing the effects of increasing serum 25(OH)D on bone metabolism markers.Aim: The aim of the study was to explore the association between serum 25(OH)D and bone metabolism markers in children.Patients and methods: Serum levels of bone formation (OC, P1NP) and bone resorption (CTx) markers (Cobas e411, Roche Diagno...

Introduction: The importance of vitamin D in metabolism, bone growth and functioning of many organs and systems (the plejotropic effect) has been broadly discussed in the literature recently. The systemic deficiency of vitamin D connected with the lower sunlight exposure and the decreased diet supply favours to bone mineral density lowering and the bone structure disorganization. More and more often the common vitamin deficiency in children and adolescents has been observed. I...

Introduction: The body composition at term equivalent age of infants born preterm is different than that of infants born at term.Aim: The aim of the study was to compare the body composition in preterm and full-term infants at age 3 and 4 years.Patients and methods: Total body bone mineral content (TBBMC, g), density (TBBMD, g/cm2), and body composition (fat mass – FM, g; lean body mass – LBM, g) were measured ...

Introduction: Optimal vitamin D intake for lactating women remains controversial. We hypothesized that 1200 IU/day (vs 400 IU/day) of vitamin D during breastfeeding will enhance maternal vitamin D status and bone mass.Methods: Healthy mothers after term, singleton delivery were randomized to receive vitamin D3: 1200 IU/day (800+400 IU/day from multivitamins) or 400 IU/day (placebo+400 IU/day from multivitamins) during lactation. Serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D...
