In brief: Pregnant women

Craniotabes, softening of the skull, has been associated with low vitamin d levels in the mother. There is preliminary evidence to suggest that autism spectrum dis orders may be increased with vitamin d deficiency in the mother.

In brief: Many disorders

With very low d, rickets in children and osteomalacia (soft bones) in adults.
These conditions can be associated with bone pain, fractures, bone loss, fatigue, muscle weakness, and low blood calcium levels. With more modest deficiency, most believe that there is an increased risk of heart disease, dementia, and many types of cancer, including breast, colon and prostate.Go to vitamindcouncil.Org.
