Low levels of vitamin D in children can cause anemia. May cause damage to vital organs due to lack of oxygen.

Anemia occurs when the body is too little oxygen-carrying red blood cells. Symptoms of mild anemia: fatigue, mild headache, and less energetic. To examine the relationship between hemoglobin and vitamin D, researchers analyzed data from blood samples of more than 9400 children in the age group 2-18 years.

Quoted from Sciencedaily.com (05/01/2011), researchers from Johns Hopkins Children's Center found decreased levels of vitamin D will reduce the levels of hemoglobin, causing anemia.

These findings were presented on May 1, 2011 in Pediatric Academic Societies in Denver, Colorado.
