MONTEIRO, Ema; BAPTISTA, Nanci; FARIA, Ana  and  LOUREIRO, Helena. Vitamin D deficiency in children with celiac disease. Acta Port Nutr [online]. 2019, n.19, pp.56-59. ISSN 2183-5985.

introduction: Celiac disease is becoming more prevalent worldwide. However, the only treatment available so far is the practice of a gluten free diet. A regular follow up on the celiac patients is essential as they are more prone to develop health complications. Vitamin D deficiency is one of the consequences pointed out by studies. Objectives: Analyse the existence of Vitamin D deficiency in children diagnosed with celiac disease. Methodology: Analyse the published literature in the electronic database Pubmed in the last 10 years using the search terms “vitamin D deficiency” and “celiac disease”. The research started in December 2018 up until February 2019. Conclusions: So far, the studies haven’t shown any correlation between children with celiac disease and vitamin D deficiency, nor as to the need of suplementation with vitamin D throughout childhood.

Keywords : Children; Vitamin D deficiency; Celiac disease.
