Iron-deficiency and vitamin B12-deficiency anaemia are the two common types of anaemia in India. Among women, iron deficiency prevalence is higher than men due to menstrual iron losses and the high iron demands of a growing foetus during pregnancies. Lack of millets in the diet due to overdependence on rice and wheat, insufficient consumption. The prevalence of vitamin D deficiency (serum 25OHD level, ≤15 ng/mL) in the total sample was 24.1%; the prevalence within subgroups is listed in Table 2, with the highest prevalence in African American adolescents compared with other ethnic groups. By using multiple logistic regression based on ethnic-specific rates extrapolated to the US. If a high prevalence of vitamin D deficiency is identified (>20% prevalence of 25(OH)D < 30 nmol/L) or the risk for vitamin D deficiency is determined to be high based on proxy indicators (e.g., prevalence of rickets >1%), food fortification and/or targeted vitamin D supplementation policies can be implemented to reduce the burden of vitamin D.

Vitamin D status and prevalence of vitamin D deficiency in Europe Vitamin D status has been studied in many European countries in various age groups. Since different studies use different laboratories and different assays, the data should be compared with caution because, as mentioned above, the inter-laboratory variation may be high ( 19 , 23 ) In India, almost all school-going children, up to 74 percent of pregnant women and up to 67 percent of infants are Vitamin D deficient. Vitamin D, also known as the 'sunshine vitamin', is a prohormone as it is produced by the body when exposed to sunlight. It has long been known to help with bone and muscle health Vitamin D deficiency can lead to rickets, soft bones, bone pain, and muscle weakness. Previous research, also led by the University of Birmingham, has shown that in babies and children vitamin D deficiency can cause seizures or heart failure as a result of a lack of calcium
Vitamin D deficiency (VDD) remains a significant health challenge globally with its overwhelming effects on skeletal growth and varied associations with extra-skeletal diseases. The last decade has reported a high prevalence of VDD in all age-groups across all zones of India. Children and adolescents are most vulnerable to ill-effects of VDD as peak linear growth and bone mass accrual occurs. ABSTRACT. Background: Vitamin B 12 deficiency owing to a vegetarian diet is common in India and is associated with neurodevelopmental disorders..
