More than 80% of the participants were vitamin D deficient.

And 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.

"There are numerous pieces of evidence in the literature that support the beneficial effect of vitamin D on the immune system, especially regarding protection against infections, including viral infections", Hernandez said in an email to CTVNews.ca on Sunday.

The findings suggest identifying and treating COVID-19 patients with vitamin D deficiencies, particularly those who are at high risk for severe cases of COVID-19 like older folks, could help improve outcomes.

The study, which was published on Tuesday in the Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism, 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.

In addition to the correlation between COVID-19 risk and vitamin D levels, people ask how it may protect them or help them recover from COVID-19. "Vitamin D supplementation during the winter months has been shown to improve mood and is recommended as adequate vitamin D can not be obtained from food alone".

"We found that COVID-19 patients with lower serum vitamin D levels had raised serum ferritin and D-dimer levels, which are markers of this hyperinflammatory response".

'Cyberpunk 2077' is delayed again, this time to December 10th
While the numerous delays are frustrating and fans are allowed to be upset at the situation, some fans have gone too far. Because of its complexity, it can be hard to pin down a concrete release date as problems can arise at any moment.

A study of over 200 COVID-19 cases in a hospital in Spain found that about 80 per cent patients had vitamin D deficiency, scientists said on Wednesday.

The CDC also warns on its website that "high levels of vitamin D may cause hypercalcemia and nephrocalcinosis". Besides, the research showed that men had lower vitamin D levels than women.

The study represents the latest research that tries to determine whether vitamin D deficiency contributes to the exacerbation of "Covid-19" cases.

Nevertheless, the group that took the dietary supplements had a "barely minor unfavorable" in comparison with those that didn't obtain them - experiencing poorer oxygenation ranges, requiring extra treatment to assist with irritation and had been discovered to be extra prone to be admitted to the intensive care unit.

Deficiencies are also linked to heart disease, diabetes, immune system disorders, certain types of cancers, and bone problems like osteoporosis.

Last month, a study from researchers in Boston found that patients over 40 were over 50 percent less likely to die from the infection if they had sufficient levels of vitamin D.

Vitamin D deficiency has been connected to several health conditions including obesity and less resilience to the flu.
