A small study, recently published in the journal PLOS ONE, finds that patients hospitalized with COVID-19 are at lower risk of having complications if they have sufficient vitamin D levels.Sufficient Vitamin D Levels May Cut Complications of COVID-19

In this study, researchers aimed to investigate the effects of a person’s vitamin D levels on the severity of the disease. They analyzed data received from patients with the positive COVID-19 tests who were hospitalized in the Sina Hospital, in Tehran, Iran.

After comparing the patients’ vitamin D levels with the severity of their COVID-19 symptoms and accounting for confounding factors, the scientists found that vitamin D level of above 30 ng/ml was significantly associated with having less severe COVID-19.

The study’s corresponding author, Dr. Michael F. Holick, director of the General Clinical Research Unit at the medical campus of Boston University, in Massachusetts, comments: “Because vitamin D deficiency and insufficiency are so widespread in children and adults in the United States and worldwide, especially in the winter months, it is prudent for everyone to take a vitamin D supplement to reduce [the] risk of being infected and having complications from COVID-19.”
