Mild vitamin A deficiency and risk of respiratory tract diseases and diarrhea in preschool and school children in northeastern Thailand

Mild vitamin A deficiency and risk of respiratory tract diseases and diarrhea in preschool and school children in northeastern Thailand

American Journal of Epidemiology 131(2): 332-339

A cross-sectional study, a follow-up study, and an intervention trial were carried out to investigate the association between mild vitamin A deficiency and the occurrence of diarrhoea and respiratory diseases. Cross-sectional analysis was performed among 1772 children, 1-8 years old in the Sakon Nakhon province of northeastern Thailand. Children with a history of diarrhoea or respiratory disease had lower serum retinol and retinol-binding protein values.
