The Role of Vitamin D in Pregnancy

Vitamin D deficiency, do you know someone suffering from this illness?

Recent studies says Vitamin D deficiency is actually a prevalent problem worldwide. According to these studies, some groups of individuals were observed to be more prone to having this condition versus others. Included in these groups were the dark-color skinned, the elderly and women.

Recent tests conducted in the Philippines commissioned by trusted healthcare provider Unilab showed that 68% of the female participants screened for Vitamin D deficiency had inadequate levels of the said vitamin in the body. The figure of vitamin D deficient male participants registered at 30%, which is significantly lower than the percentage of females, albeit still quite high.

Women were found to be at greater risk of being Vitamin “D-ficient” due to their biological make up. Women start off with having lower bone density than their male peers and reach the peak of their bone mass at an earlier age than men do. This means women have a higher calcium requirement than the opposite sex. And because Vitamin D plays an essential role in the body’s absorption of calcium, it follows that women need to have higher Vitamin D levels in their body compared to men.
