In forensic contexts, it is possible that fluorescence of some nonskeletal
materials in the environment may cause investigators to have to evaluate finds to assess forensic significance.
consequences of VDD include an increased risk of certain cancers, hypertension, type 1 diabetes mellitus, multiple sclerosis, and more severe forms of tuberculosis .
Bikle et al., "The nonskeletal
effects of vitamin D: an Endocrine Society scientific statement," Endocrine Reviews, vol.
Vitamin D, as a critical and essential micronutrient for human health, has received widespread attention for numerous nonskeletal
effects, including its potential in pancreatic insulin secretion and insulin action .
Over the past decade, a large body of evidence from both observational and experimental studies has clearly suggested vitamin D's nonskeletal
effects, especially those on individual or combined metabolic syndrome parameters such as adiposity, blood pressure, lipid metabolism, glucose intolerance, insulin resistance and secretion, and other metabolic abnormalities [2-5].
problems in preadolescent children: preventive and interceptive treatment in family practice.
Most BTMs are present in type I collagen in nonskeletal
tissues, therefore disease processes involving matrix remodeling in other tissues, such as systemic sclerosis, congestive heart failure, or dilated cardiomyopathy have been shown to increase BTM concentrations (35-37).
Epidemiological literatures emphasized the association between serum vitamin D level and nonskeletal
disease as cardiovascular events [5-7], metabolic syndrome , cancer [9, 10], autoimmune disease , and critical illness .
 and Holick  suggested vitamin D with calcium administration as modifiers of diabetic risk which maintain [Ca.sup.2+] homeostasis and further proved nonskeletal
outcomes including neuromuscular function and falls, psoriasis, multiple sclerosis, colorectal, and prostate cancer.
In India, Susheela and Bhatnagar (2002) in a hospital based study diagnosed symptoms of skeletal and nonskeletal
fluorosis in patients aged 8 to 60 years of age with serum F levels ranging from 2.1 to 5.0 [micro]mol/L .
Skeletal and nonskeletal
effects of vitamin D: is vitamin D a tonic for bone and other tissues?
Unilateral absence is associated with other skeletal and nonskeletal
congenital anomalies in 57% of cases [1, 4-6], including at least one case associated with VATER complex (vertebral defects, anal atresia, tracheoesophageal fistula with esophageal atresia, and radial and renal anomalies) .
