Marmoset diet and health?

Hi,
I am currently completing an assignment for my college course about marmoset nutrition.
I am struggling to find any information about what supplements an adult marmoset needs? and what diseases or disorders can occur as a result of not getting the right nutrients.

I know they need calcium and vitamin D3 and that the youngsters can suffer from MBD and rickets if they don't get the right amount of calcium but I haven't found any diet related illnessnes for adults?

Also, how does a pregnant, lactating and geriatric diet differ to that of a maintainence diet for an adult marmoset?? As well as the whole diseases/disorders and supplements for the pregnant, lactating and geriatric.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
