Vitamin D Endocrine System and COVID-19: Treatment with Calcifediol

It is proposed to use calcifediol at the doses described for the rapid correction of 25OHD deficiency in all patients in the early stages of COVID-19, in association, if necessary, with the new oral antiviral agents.

Vitamin D: A Role Also in Long COVID-19?

There are promising reasons to promote research into the effects of vitamin D supplementation in COVID-19 patients, but no studies to date have found that vitamin D affects post-CO VID-19 symptoms or biomarkers.



Vitamin D deficiency aggravates COVID-19: systematic review and meta-analysis

A positive association between vitamin D deficiency and the severity of the disease was observed and was identified that severe cases of COVID-19 present 64% (or 1.64; 95% CI = 1.30–2.09) moreitamin D deficiency compared with mild cases.

Vitamin D status and seroconversion for COVID-19 in UK healthcare workers who isolated for COVID-19 like symptoms during the 2020 pandemic.

In those healthcare workers who have isolated due to symptoms of COVID-19, those of BAME ethnicity are at the highest risk of vitamin D deficiency, especially in BAME male staff.

Vitamin D sufficiency, a serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D at least 30 ng/mL reduced risk for adverse clinical outcomes in patients with COVID-19 infection

It is recommended that improving vitamin D status in the general population and in particular hospitalized patients has a potential benefit in reducing the severity of morbidities and mortality associated with acquiring COVID-19.

Interaction between age and vitamin D deficiency in severe COVID-19 infection.

In this retrospective study, vitamin D deficiency showed a signal of association with severe COVID-19 infection, suggesting VDD may have a greater impact in younger patients, and should be confirmed in larger, prospective, adequately powered studies.

Association of Vitamin D Status and Other Clinical Characteristics With COVID-19 Test Results

Findings appear to support a role of vitamin D status in COVID-19 risk, and randomized clinical trials are needed to determine whether broad population interventions and interventions among groups at increased risk ofitamin D deficiency and CO VID-19 could reduce COVIDs19 incidence.

Vitamin D status and outcomes for hospitalised older patients with COVID-19

Older adults with vitamin D deficiency and COVID-19 may demonstrate worse morbidity outcomes and vitamin D status may be a useful prognosticator.

Nutritional status of patients with COVID-19

serum 25(oH)D level in patients with CoVID-19

Vitamin D deficiency and obesity have been found to increase the risk of severe course and death of coronavirus infection.
