In 2020-2023, 9020 cases of vitamin D deficiency were diagnosed at the "Vardanants" Center for Innovative Medicine.

This was announced by endocrinologist Mari Ghasaboghlyan, in the presentation "Vitamin D, Evolution" made at the conference organized by the Armenian Association of Young Doctors.

The doctor presented the role of vitamin D deficiency in the development of a number of chronic diseases, as well as in the aggravation of already existing ones.

"For example, vitamin D deficiency can contribute to the development of type 1 and type 2 diabetes. The prevalence of vitamin D deficiency among overweight, obese children and teenagers has also been proven," said Mari Ghasaboghlyan.

Vitamin D deficiency can also contribute to gynecological problems. 67-85% of girls with polycystic ovary syndrome have varying degrees of vitamin D deficiency.
