Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

1 Citation (Scopus)

Abstract

According to a large epidemiologic study, a majority of American children are vitamin D insufficient or deficient. In addition to negative effects on bone metabolism, low vitamin D levels in the pediatric population are associated with adverse cardiovascular risk factors, including an increase in systolic blood pressure and a reduction in HDL cholesterol levels.
