Table 3 Vitamin D levels (ng/ml) ± SEM according to underlying pathology

From: Vitamin D levels in a pediatric population of a primary care centre: a public health problem?

Pathology, n = 60 (100%) Respiratory, n = 22 (36.66%) Overweight/obesity, n = 23 (38.33%) Others, n = 15 (25%)
Sufficiency, n = 12 (20%) n = 3 (13.64%) n = 6 (26.08%) n = 3 (20%)
28.3 ± 2.28 ng/ml 22.1 ± 0.65 ng/ml 24.6 ± 2.03 ng/ml
Insufficiency/deficiency, n = 48 (80%) n = 19 (86.36%) n = 17 (73.9%) n = 12 (80%)
11.6 ± 1.19 ng/ml 14.81 ± 0.62 ng/ml 17.1 ± 0.57 ng/ml
  1. The contingency table was analysed with the Chi square test (p = 0.58) revealing that the vitamin D levels are not related to the underlying pathology of the patients
