Resumen

ACOSTA-BENDEK, Belle Marie et al. Serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D state in healthy children ten year minors old of Barranquilla metropolitan area. Salud pública Méx [online]. 2017, vol.59, n.6, pp.657-664. ISSN 0036-3634.  http://dx.doi.org/10.21149/8362.

Objetive:

To evaluate the serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25-OH-D) levels in healthy children under 10 years of the Barranquilla metropolitan area.

Materials and methods:

A descriptive cross-sectional study in which serum levels of 25-OH-D were analyzed in 360 healthy children from 2014 to 2015.

Results:

The median value of 25-OH-D serum level was 32.23±8.56 ng/mL; 46.38% of children had vitamin D levels in the insufficient range (<30 ng/mL), while 3.05% were deficient (<20 ng/mL). Soledad and Puerto Colombia were the municipalities with more population in this condition.

Conclusions:

It is necessary to promote vitamin D supplement consumption and healthy lifestyles in order to safely improve levels of this micronutrient in the population.
