Healthcare experts gathered in Abu Dhabi to discuss the impact of Vitamin D deficiency on human health while highlighting the need for the regular screening of Vitamin D levels for people of all age groups, to ensure the early detection of Vitamin D deficiency, as several recent studies have associated the condition with a number of diseases, ranging from bone and muscle weakness to infertility, cancer and heart disease.
During the two-day "Abu Dhabi Annual International Conference on Vitamin D Deficiency and Human Health," which concluded on Friday, experts based in the UAE also called for the standardisation of Vitamin D screening in the country while urging government authorities to expand the scope of their health insurance by adding Vitamin D screening.
