A new study suggests that low levels of vitamin D may be associated with greater loss of kidney function over time in children

A new study suggests that low levels of vitamin D may be associated with greater loss of kidney function over time in children. Children with chronic kidney disease who had lower vitamin D levels had higher levels of blood markers related to kidney dysfunction as well as greater kidney function loss over time. The findings are published in the Journal of the American Society of Nephrology (JASN).
