Vitamin D in COVID 19

1 Read Comments                

Vitamin D is known to modulate the systemic inflammatory response by interacting with the immune system and has a possible protective role against the risk of respiratory tract infections.  

A study reported that the risk of COVID-19 infection was higher in subjects with deficient vitamin D values, contrasting those with replete values. They also found that Vitamin D deficiency worsened the severity and increased the mortality in COVID-19 infection. 

So Vitamin D Supplementation may be considered as a preventive and therapeutic measure in Covid-19 patient.
