What are the precautions for vitamin d supplementation?


Supplementing with vitamin d is something everyone needs, especially for babies. However, when the baby is supplementing with vitamin D, special attention should be paid to some matters, otherwise, it will not only make up for nothing, but also cause harm to the baby's body.

Many parents worry about vitamin D poisoning when supplementing their baby with vitamin D. In fact, according to the current recommended dose in my country (400 IU / day) for long-term supplementation, this worry is unnecessary. In 1998, the U.S. Food and Nutrition Board (FNB) defined the tolerable maximum intake of vitamin d (UL) as 2000 IU/day. The latest research shows that this figure is very conservative. In fact, the long-term daily intake of human body is 10000IU. Vitamin D is still safe. Even so, there are a few things to keep in mind when supplementing your baby with vitamin D preparations:

1. Avoid repeated supplementation. Although the content of vitamin d in natural foods is very small, there are many vitamin d-fortified foods on the market, especially dairy products. When giving babies long-term oral vitamin d preparations, they should avoid duplication with vitamin d-fortified foods .

2. It is best to choose products from well-known companies for vitamin d preparations. These products are relatively reliable in quality and stable in vitamin d content.

Supplementation of adequate amounts of vitamin D may still lead to rickets. For the vast majority (more than 95%) of vitamin D-deficiency rickets, regular supplementation can be corrected. However, this is not the case for a small number of non-nutritive vitamin D-deficiency rickets. Rickets that are still ineffective after conventional prevention or treatment should go to the hospital for regular examination, and some causes of familial hypophosphatemia should be excluded; distal renal tubular acidosis ; Vitamin d-dependent rickets; rickets caused by renal rickets.
