Özet

Vitamin D deficiency in childhood is a significant problem worldwide. Religious, social customs, and lack of food fortification were significant hurdles in the way of the rickets scourge. Recent data support a serum level of 25(OH)D level > 40 ng/mL as the appropriate standard to achieve to prevent rickets. Herein, the current approaches of preventing rickets and optimal level of different vitamin D intakes were evaluated.
