Corona patients suffer from a lack of “vitamin D” – Saudi...

A study of low “vitamin D” was found in more than 80% of the 200 patients with “Covid-19” hospitalized in Spain. The study found that the majority of patients being treated for “Covid-19” in a hospital in the northern city of Santander suffer from vitamin D deficiency.

According to “Russia Today,” researchers at the University of Cantabria determined that only 82% of the 216 patients had insufficient levels – compared to 47% of the people in the control group who did not have the virus.

Vitamin D, which promotes bone health and supports the functions of the immune system, is produced naturally by the body when exposed to sunlight. It can also be obtained from eating foods such as fatty fish, egg yolks, mushrooms and cheese.

Patients with a deficiency of the sun vitamin in the study were more likely to have high blood pressure and heart disease, as well as spend longer in the hospital.

However, the researchers found no link between vitamin D deficiency and disease severity, with no significantly higher rates of ICU admission, ventilator use, or death among those with insufficient levels of the vitamin.

In the study, vitamin D supplementation was also given from the admission point of 19 patients, who were evaluated separately from the rest of the group.

However, the group that took the supplement had a “somewhat minor drawback” compared to those who did not. They had low oxygen levels, needed more medication to help treat inflammation, and found that they were more likely to be admitted to the care unit. But the researchers said that the results could be explained by 6 out of 19 people who took nutritional supplements, and finally took corticosteroids or immunosuppressants in the previous three months, which may affect the severity of their disease.
