Charting Pediatrics

Apr 20, 2021

In the last decade, studies have shown the fundamental role Vitamin D plays in disease and health. Vitamin D deficiency often develops in childhood and is estimated to impact one in 10 U.S. children. Prolonged and untreated vitamin D deficiency can impact multiple organs and functions, but it rarely causes overt symptoms and often goes unnoticed. In this episode, we are joined by Liliane Diab, MD to discuss screening for iron and Vitamin D deficiency.

Dr. Diab is part of the Clinical Nutrition team at Children’s Hospital Colorado and is Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.
