What is "rickets"?

Rickets is a bone disorder that occurs in children due to a lack of vitamin D, calcium, or phosphate. It leads to soft and weak bones, causing symptoms like bone pain, skeletal deformities, and delayed growth. Rickets can be caused by factors such as not getting enough sunlight, poor diet, or certain medical conditions that affect nutrient absorption. Treatment typically involves taking vitamin D supplements, calcium, and phosphate supplements, along with changes in diet to make sure these nutrients are enough.
