There's an important link between vitamin D and coronavirus

  • Health workers and their families account for 1 in 6 hospitalized

Professor Adrian Martineau, lead researcher, said of the ongoing work, "There is mounting evidence that vitamin D might reduce the risk of respiratory infections, with some recent studies suggesting that people with lower vitamin D levels may be more susceptible to coronavirus".

And, although they didn't establish an association between vitamin D deficiency and the severity of COVID-19, the study's authors noted that the group of hospitalized patients who had been taking oral supplements prior to admission had slightly more favourable outcomes than those who didn't take supplements before they were admitted to hospital, including lower ferritin levels, a decreased need for the immunosuppressive drug tocilizumab, and lower ICU admissions.

Researchers also say coronavirus patients with low vitamin D levels had more inflammatory biomarkers in their blood.

Asked how vitamin D could affect one's bone health, Jane Clarke, Dietician and Founder of Nourish answered: "Vitamin D is important for the absorption of bone-strengthening calcium - crucial at any time, but especially in the winter when a fall on the ice may result in a broken bone".

A September retrospective study by the University of Chicago found a similar association after evaluating 489 patients whose vitamin D levels were measured a year before being tested for COVID-19.

Vitamin D deficiency has also been linked to health concerns including heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and multiple sclerosis.

However, the group that took the supplement had a somewhat minor drawback compared to those who did not. To try and plug this knowledge gap and find out how COVID-19 has affected the health and wellbeing of other key workers, the researchers studied 104 employees of one grocery store in Boston, Massachusetts.

"Low levels of vitamin D are associated with lowered energy, mood and immune health (to name a few)".

"Vitamin D treatment should be recommended in COVID-19 patients with low levels of vitamin D circulating in the blood since this approach might have beneficial effects in both the musculoskeletal and the immune system", he said. The Boston University study stated that vitamin D sufficiency can prevent this condition and ultimately death from COVID-19.

"One approach is to identify and treat vitamin D deficiency, especially in high-risk individuals such as the elderly, patients with comorbidities, and nursing home residents, who are the main target population for the COVID-19", said Hernendez.

"The role of vitamin D supplementation in the prevention or treatment of COVID-19 is not known".
