vitamin D may prevent COVID, reduce severity and reduce risk of death

While the most important studies have shown that vitamin D can contribute to the prevention of COVID-19, to recovery from COVID-19, to keeping you out of the ICU and to preventing death, new research adds 3 more studies to the mountain of evidence.

The first of the most important vitamin D studies has suggests that taking vitamin D can help prevent COVID: people who are deficient in vitamin D were 77% more likely to get COVID in this study, while people who were low in vitamin D but took vitamin D supplements were not at increased risk.

The second important study suggests that vitamin D can help you recover from COVID (Postgraduate Medical Journal Nov 2020;doi:10.1136/postgradmedj-2020-139065).

The third study is remarkable. This study found that while 50% of COVID patients with symptoms of acute respiratory infection had to be admitted to ICU when treated with the “best available therapy,” only 2% who were also given vitamin D had to be. Strikingly, while 8% of the control group died, no one in the vitamin D group died.

For a full discussion of these 3 studies, see Vol.24, No.4 of The Natural Path.

Now three just published studies of blood levels of vitamin D add to the mountain of evidence.

The first study looked at the relationship between COVID outcomes and vitamin D levels. It didn’t find any difference in vitamin D deficiency in people with or without COVID. There’s big “but” though. Severe vitamin D deficiency was way more common in COVID-19 positive people: 44% versus 31%. And the “but” gets bigger still. COVID patients with higher vitamin D levels had lower markers of blood clotting and inflammation, less lung involvement and shorter hospital stays. The researchers conclude that  better levels of vitamin D could protect you from COVID, decrease disease severity and shorten hospital stays (J Med Virol 2021 Jan 29. doi:10.1002/jmv.26832).

The second study looked at the relationship between blood levels of vitamin D and acute respiratory infection in COVID patients. People with lower vitamin D needed more oxygen support (CPAP and non-invasive mechanical ventilation). The study concludes, again, that a significant number of COVID patients have vitamin D deficiency. It also shows that vitamin D deficiency is more common in patients who require more oxygen support (Panminerva Med 2021 Jan 25. doi:10.23736/S0031-0808.21.04277-4).

The third study looked at the crucial relationship between levels of vitamin D, the severity of COVID and dying from COVID. It found that people were more likely to be low in vitamin D if their COVID was more serious: 22% of people with moderate COVID had insufficient or deficient levels of vitamin D versus 69.1% of people whose COVID was severe to critical. When the COVID was severe to critical the level of vitamin D was significantly lower. An incredible 93.1% of patients with severe to critical COVID had insufficient levels of vitamin D. Crucially in this study, low levels of vitamin D were a predictor of dying. That means that this study suggests, once again, that low levels of vitamin D increase your risk of severe COVID and death from COVID (J Nutr Health Aging 2021 ;25(2):189-196).

When will this mountain of evidence for a safe, inexpensive contribution to protecting people from the pandemic get the attention it deserves?
