Objective: Associations between childhood obesity and disturbed bone metabolism have been extensively studied. Both RANK/RANKL/OPG and adipocytokines are involved in bone metabolism in obese individuals although published data remain inconsistent.

Objective: Insuficient vitamin D supply defined as serum hydroxyvitamin D (25OHD) <20 ng/ml is considered as one of possibile cardiovascular risk factors among adults with hypertension.

The aim of the study was to assess vitamin D status in children and adolescents with hypertension.Methods: The cross sectional study w...
