Hypocalcemia and hypophosphatemia in 6-month infant
#1
No lab results to post except for below range calcium and phosphate, accompanied by muscle weakness. Mother has tried increased dose of vit d a couple of days ago, and ive read that low vit d is reponsible for both serum deficiencies, but i am curious what is happening. Formula-fed infant. Will update if i get more lab values.

Good question, dont know. Most likely contains plenty of PUFA, a lot of formulas add linolenic acid.
