Vitamin D Deficiency Observed in Breast Feeding Mothers

In a study published in Clinical Pediatrics, it is reported that breast feeding mothers may be deficient in vitamin D. If this deficit is taken care of, their children// may not be affected by vitamin D deficiency disorders.

Joyce M. Lee and his team belonging to University of Michigan conducted a study among forty healthy women, majority of them black and their children. Twenty of the mothers were found to be deficient in vitamin D. Among their children who were being breast fed, twenty six were found to be lacking in vitamin D. This deficiency was reported despite a regular intake of multivitamins by the mothers.

The most economical and natural source of vitamin D is from sunshine. Besides this, omega fatty acids and fish liver oil also provide vitamin D especially for infants.

For healthy bones, it is essential that the children have the right amount of vitamin D in them. The aftermath of vitamin D deficiency in children could result in rickets later in life. Generally black people are more prone to vitamin D deficiency anomalies as their skin cannot absorb enough sunshine unlike their white counterparts.
