A deficiency in the amount of vitamin D in the body may lead to high risk of chronic kidney diseases, especially in children, says a new study. Vitamin D deficiency has been found common in children with chronic kidney disease (CKD) — the longstanding disease of the kidneys leading to renal failure.  Researchers have identified certain modifiable and non-modifiable factors associated with vitamin D deficiency in children with CKD.  According to the study, nearly two-thirds of children suffering from vitamin D deficiency were also suffering from certain abnormalities like glomerulopathy — a set of diseases affecting the nephrons.
