Fraza do cytowania: Bołtuć K. The influence of the vitamin D during pregnancy and in maternal and child health. Polski Przegląd Nauk o Zdrowiu. 2019;4(61):363–368. DOI: https://doi.org/10.20883/ppnoz.2019.71

Receptors for vitamin D are located in almost every tissue and cell of the body. That suggests that vitamin D levels during pregnancy may affect its course, fetal organogenesis and general health of woman and her child. Not all of the mechanisms have been fully understood, however, recent studies have shown that women that suffer from hypovitaminosis D during pregnancy are more susceptible to have miscarriages and preeclampsia. Most importantly he fetus is endangered by disturbed organogenesis. Moreover, children are more exposed to bone disorders, respiratory tract infections and autoimmune diseases in the future. Taking it into account, vitamin D supplementation is highly recommended during pregnancy.

Key words: organogenesis, supplementation, disorders of development, calcium and phosphate homeostasis, metabolism.
