Yes. Fortified dairy: Long term vitamin D deficiency in adults can lead to osteomalacia (bone softening) and osteoporosis (bone density loss, causing easy fracturing). Other symptoms of a deficiency of vitamin D are muscle pains, muscle weakness, and aches in the bones. In children, prolonged vitamin D deficiency causes rickets (bony deformities).
