The clinical syndrome of Vitamin D deficiency can be a result of deficient production in the skin, lack of dietary intake, accelerated losses, impaired vitamin D activation or resistance to the biologic effects of vitamin D.

Vitamin D also helps in the homeostatic mechanisms of calcium, phosphorus and alkaline phosphatase.
