Vitamin D Deficiency Raises COVID-19 Infection Risk by 77%, Study Finds

  1. "There is prior evidence from multiple sources that vitamin D can enhance both innate and adaptive immunity," Dr. David O. Meltzer, a professor of medicine at the University of Chicago, told UPI.
  2. Based on existing research, many physicians recommend that patients take vitamin D supplements if their diet is lacking in the nutrient because it has been shown to play a role in immune health.
  3. For this study, Meltzer and his colleagues analyzed data on 489 University of Chicago Medicine patients for whom vitamin D status was included in their electronic health records before the start of the COVID-19 outbreak in the United States.
