Health & Fitness

In a recent study conducted at the University of Heidelberg in Germany, it has come out that low levels of vitamin D in the body can cause Chronic Kidney Diseases (CKD) in children and adults. Chronic kidney diseases can lead to renal failures in the wrong run. The study was conducted on 500 kids from 12 countries who were suffering from kidney problems. Two thirds of the children had substandard levels of Vitamin D in the body which culminated into several renal and kidney diseases.

Some of the kids were administered with vitamin D supplements and soon they reported double the levels of vitamin D in the body as compared to the children who did not take the supplements. Dr. Anke Doyon, one of the researchers who conducted the study said, “Vitamin D levels are influenced more strongly by seasonal factors, the type of disease and nutritional supplementation than by common variants in vitamin D regulating genes.”
