Vitamin D Deficiency and COVID-19 - Women's Excellence

Research Source

Our interpretation of current COVID-19 data that increased infections without an increased death rate suggests that people are fighting the virus better today than back in March. After exploring this latest research on vitamin D, we are encouraging our patients to get their vitamin D levels checked and possibly add vitamin D supplementation to their daily routine dependent on the results. We believe in prevention and embrace a strengthened immune system and natural therapies when we feel they can make a difference.

It is common that people have vitamin D deficiency in the winter months as opposed to the summer months which may explain some of the disparities in the infection and death rates. Since a cure for COVID-19 is not readily available and a vaccine has not been thoroughly tested at this point, we encourage our patients to explore Vitamin D evaluation for potential supplementation. Come see us now before the winter weather is upon us to review your Vitamin D levels.
