Vitamin D & Fracture Risk in the Pediatric Population

Official Title: Vitamin D & Fracture Risk in the Pediatric Population

This study compares vitamin D levels in patients with a metaphyseal fracture (broken bone in the area of the bone’s growth plate) to patients with a non-metaphyseal fracture (broken bone in the non-growth plate area) by collecting blood samples from all study participants to measure vitamin D, calcium and parathyroid hormone (PTH) levels. This study will help researchers determine if there is a correlation (connection) between low vitamin D and broken bone location.
