SARS-COV-2 Positivity Rates Associated with Circulating 25-Hydroxy Vitamin D Levels

SARS-CoV-2 positivity rates associated with circulating 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels

A recent study conducted by Quest Diagnostics and Boston university stating the associations between Vitamin D levels and COVID 19 risk continues to strength indicating that people with low levels of Vitamin D may have a significantly higher possibility of showing high positive rate of SARS -CoV-2.

The SARS-CoV-2 positivity rate was higher in the 39,190 patients with “deficient” 25(OH)D values (<20 ng/mL). Research suggests that compared to people with sufficient levels of Vitamin D, Vitamin D deficient people shown a 54% higher SARS -CoV- 2 positivity rate.

This new study has paved a way suggesting Vitamin D3 Supplementation could be potentially promising and safe approach to reduce the risk of COVID 19 infections and thereby can reduce the mortality rate.
