Our free, monthly Vitamin D clinic is available to children from all communities with low Vitamin D levels.
We will review and treat individual Vitamin D levels to ensure bone growth.
Vitamin D is essential for strong bones, muscles and general health. It is crucial for bone and muscle development.
Low Vitamin D can increase risk of:
- Bone and muscle pain
- Soft and weakened bones in children
- Weak and fragile bones in older adults
Some people have a higher risk of low Vitamin D levels as the pigment in the skin acts as a filter to light from the sun and reduces the amount of Vitamin D that the body makes.
Our doctors in this clinic are:
- Dr Tom Volkman (RCH Fellow)
- Dr Ingrid Laemmle-Ruff (RCH Fellow)
This service is free to patients with a referral from their doctor. Contact us today to make an appointment.
