The relationship between coronavirus and vitamin D deficiency confirmed once again


Vitamin D deficiency was detected in 80% of patients with a new type of coronavirus (Kovid-19).

The research, the results of which were published in the “Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism”, revealed once again the relationship between vitamin D deficiency and Kovid-19.

As part of the research, it was observed that 80% of the 216 Kovid-19 patients studied at the Marques de Valdecilla University Hospital in Spain had a vitamin D deficiency and vitamin D levels in men were lower than in women.

Serum levels of inflammatory markers such as ferritin and D-dimer were also elevated in Kovid-19 patients with low vitamin D levels.

Dr. Jos Hernandez, “Patients with Covid-19 with low levels of vitamin D in their blood should be advised to take vitamin D. This approach can have beneficial effects on both the muscles and the skeleton and the immune system.” made his assessment.

Vitamin D is said to help the immune system fight infections such as the common cold and the flu.

Scientists have discovered a strong link between vitamin D deficiency and Kovid-19 deaths.

Experts from Northwestern University in the United States have discovered this link by examining Covid-19 patient data collected from hospitals in the United States, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, England, Switzerland, Iran, South Korea and China.

In the study conducted in Singapore, it was found that the combination of vitamins D3 and B12 and magnesium mineral could prevent the progression of Kovid-19 to a fatal or severe stage in patients aged 50 and over.
