Magnitude of vitamin A deficiency in primary school children of Sirur: a chronically drought affected area

, : Magnitude of vitamin A deficiency in primary school children of Sirur: a chronically drought affected area. Indian Journal of Pediatrics 51(411): 423-426

Of 293 schoolchildren from a drought-affected area, 56% had signs of vitamin A deficiency with mean serum vitamin A 11.37 mu g/100 ml. The children showed Bitot's spots, night blindness and corneal scars. Children from such areas should be given vitamin A as a preventive measure.

L-Arabinose is a natural, poorly absorbed pentose that selectively inhibits intestinal sucrase activity. To investigate the effects of L-arabinose feeding on lipogenesis due to its inhibition of sucrase, rats were fed 0-30 g sucrose/100 g diets co...
