It has long been pointed out that critically ill patients with COVID-19 are deficient in vitamin D , and doctors have stated that 'taking vitamin D does not prevent the disease,' as sufficient research results have not yet been shown. It has also been pointed out . However, vitamin D in the subsequent research is possible to reduce the severity of COVID-19 has been shown in clinical trials for, the relationship between the COVID-19 and vitamin D have attracted attention.

Meanwhile, a research team led by Jose Hernandez of the University of Cantabria in Spain investigated the relationship between vitamin D and COVID-19, and found that more than 80% of people with COVID-19 have vitamin D deficiency. became.

Hernandez and colleagues surveyed 216 people with COVID-19 at Marqués de Valdesilla University Hospital in Santander, Spain, and found that 80% of them had vitamin D deficiency, with men rather than women.

It is also known that when vitamin D is deficient, calcium is not absorbed by the body, causing bone-related symptoms such as osteoporosis and osteomalacia. However, vitamin D deficiency, which is deficient in the body, is still in the research stage and is thought to be involved in various health concerns other than bone-related symptoms.

In fact, taking vitamin D has a beneficial effect on the immune system and is said to help protect the human body from infections.

'Treatment for vitamin D deficiency is the recommended treatment for people with COVID-19 who are deficient in vitamin D in the body. This approach is for the blood, musculoskeletal and immune system,' Hernandez said in a statement. It can be beneficial to both, 'he said.
