In brief: Rickets in children
And in adults it's called osteomalacia.
Your doctor can check your vitamin d level with a blood test. Vitamin d deficiency causing bone diseases like rickets and osteomalacia is rare in developed countries, but low vitamin d is also associated with weak bones and falls in the elderly.
