New RCT: Vitamin D and calcium supplementation helps promote bone health in children taking glucocorticoids
A new study out of India found that vitamin D and calcium protects against bone loss in children taking glucocorticoids for their nephrotic syndrome.
Researchers looked at 22,000 individuals, 181 of which took glucocorticoids. Those 181 people were twice as likely to have severe D deficiency, levels less than 10 ng/ml.
