A new retrospective study has been published on PLoS ONE showing the significant role vitamin D plays in the body's defenses against COVID-19.
Of 1176 patients admitted, 253 had records of a 25(OH)D level prior to COVID-19 infection. A lower vitamin D status was more common in patients with the severe or critical disease (<20 ng/mL [87.4%]) than in individuals with mild or moderate disease (<20 ng/mL [34.3%] p < 0.001). Patients with vitamin D deficiency (<20 ng/mL) were 14 times more likely to have severe or critical disease than patients with 25(OH)D ≥40 ng/mL (odds ratio [OR], 14; 95% confidence interval [CI], 4 to 51; p < 0.001).
This study echoes the findings of 11 Randomized Controlled Trials which show on average a 51% improvement among patients receiving vitamin D supplementation as part of their COVID-19 treatment protocol.
It should also be noted that vitamin D levels have been negatively correlated with incidence of infectious respiratory disease since at least 2006
What makes this latest study noteworthy are the dates regarding its publication:
Received: June 27, 2021; Accepted: January 12, 2022; Published: February 3, 2022
This study sat in peer review limbo for six months. Was that because it contained findings that didn’t advance the “official” wisdom of “you must be vaccinated to ward off severe COVID-19”?
The world wonders….
Anyone who's been paying attention has known about the correlation between low vitamin D levels and bad Covid outcomes since at least mid 2020. Yes, its only a correlation, but considering how cheap and readily available supplements are, it's absurd that our "public health" officials don't recommend getting one's levels checked and taking corrective action if they're low.
I am a big fan of Vitamin D3, take it daily, and used a large dose when I and my family members had Covid. I also suntan when I get a chance.
But I also wanted to mention that vitamin D3 deficiency is NOT just due to lack of certain foods. It is an indicator of systemic problems like diabetes, obesity etc.
So correlating D3 with outcomes may miss the realproblem that causes bad outcomes.
