Vitamin D Deficiency (Part 2) | Hyperparathyroidism, Clinical Features (ex. Osteoporosis), Diagnosis, Treatment

This is part 2 in a series on Vitamin D deficiency. In this lesson, we continue with our discussion on Vitamin D deficiency, including hypocalcemia and secondary hyperparathyroidism, clinical features including myalgias & arthralgias, and complications like rickets and osteoporosis. We also discuss methods to diagnose (mild, moderate and severe vitamin D deficiency), and ways to treat it.

This is a very complex topic that definitely requires more discussion! Again, I’m not entirely satisfied with this lesson, so please let me know if you found it helpful!
