In this single-center, retrospective cohort study, likely deficient vitamin D status was associated with increased COVID-19 risk, a finding that suggests that randomized trials may be needed to determine whether vitamin D affects COVID-19 risk.
A regular bolus of vitamin D supplementation was associated with less severe COVID-19 and better survival in frail elderly. It is therefore recommended that the patient take the supplements.
Vitamin D deficiency may cause immune dysfunction. Therefore Novel_Sars-viruses have an easier time causing respiratory injury.
“A greater proportion of vitamin D-deficient individuals with SARS-CoV-2 infection turned SARS-CoV-2 RNA negative with a significant decrease in fibrinogen on high-dose cholecalciferol supplementation.”
to paraphrase the authors: “If vitamin D does, in fact, reduce the severity of COVID-19 then supplements would offer a relatively easy option to decrease the impact of the pandemic.”
Vitamin A is a micronutrient found in our body. It plays many critical physiologic roles, including cellular health, visions, and many other functions. Therefore it is critical to maintaining optimal levels of vitamin A.
