Prévalence du déficit en vitamine D chez les enfants âgés de 5 a 10 ans en Bretagne Occidentale.

Abstract : French guidelines do not recommend systematic supplementation of vitamin D in children aged 5-10 years old owing to the lack of data on vitamin D status in this age group. Our objective was to assess the prevalence of vitamin D deficiency in these children. Single-center, prospective, epidemiological study including 358 children aged 0-15 years. The endpoint was the concentration of vitamin D. In all, 316 children were divided into four groups according to age: 0-18 months (n=113); 18 months to 5 years (n=103); 5-10 years (n=62); and 10-15 years (n=38). The median concentration of vitamin D decreased with age (P<0.001): 90.2 nmol/L in the group aged 0-18 months; 56.7 nmol/L in the group aged 18 months to 5 years; 49.05 nmol/L in the group aged 5-10 years; and 42.45 nmol/L in the group aged 10-15 years. This corresponds to an increase in the prevalence of vitamin D deficiency in children aged 5-10 years (51.6% vs. 8.8% in the group aged 0-18 months, P<0.001). For children aged 5-10 years, the prevalence of deficiency was greater in the non-supplementation group (75%) compared with the supplementation group (13%; P<0.001). This study demonstrates the high prevalence of vitamin D deficiency in children aged 5-10 years and the relationship between supplementation and vitamin D status. It provides an argument in favor of supplementation in children aged 5-10 years in this region and a reconsideration of the French recommendations.
