Rickets is a condition that causes children to have soft, weak bones. Skin produces vitamin D in response to the sunlight's rays. Some foods additionally contain vitamin D, including prepared milk items and cereals, and some types of fish. Bone x-rays might show areas with calcium loss or changes in bone shape. The therapy for rickets depends on the root cause of the problem. If rickets is triggered by an absence of vitamin D in the diet plan, after that it is usually treated with thoroughly adjusted degrees of vitamin D and calcium. The child's problem might improve within a couple of weeks of therapy. Your child could not get sufficient vitamin D if he or she: Has dark skin; Spends too little time outside; Has on sunscreen regularly when out of doors; Doesn't eat foods including vitamin D as a result of lactose intolerance or a rigorous vegetarian diet; Is nursed without receiving vitamin D supplements; Can't use or make vitamin D due to a clinical disorder such as gastric disease. Symptoms include bone pain or inflammation, damaged development, and defects of the bones and teeth. Your child's doctor uses laboratory and imaging tests to make the diagnosis.
