Vitamin D deficiencies may well lead to issues like weakened mineralization and even myopathy. Low levels of vitamin D result in reduced muscle strength, sarcopenia, functional limitation, disability and falls and physical function in older adults. Osteomalacia and rickets may also stem from15 vitamin D deficiency.
