The risk of recurrent diarrhea is not reduced when infants are given vitamin D supplements, according to a placebo-controlled study that included 3,046 high-risk infants, some of whom were given quarterly doses of 100,000 IU. "Although reductions in incidence have been made in resource-limited settings, the disease burden associated with recurrent enteric illnesses remains an immense public health problem, resulting in malnutrition, disability, and mortality among children," the authors wrote.
