Researchers are urging the Irish government to immediately change recommendations on vitamin D supplements and encourage all adults to take supplements during the COVID-19 crisis.
A new publication from Dr Eamon Laird and Professor Rose Anne Kenny, School of Medicine, and the Irish Longitudinal Study on Ageing (TILDA), in collaboration with Professor Jon Rhodes at University of Liverpool, highlights the association between vitamin D levels and mortality from COVID-19.
The authors propose that, whereas optimising vitamin D levels will certainly benefit bone and muscle health, the data suggests that it is also likely to reduce serious COVID-19 complications. Vitamin D can support the immune system through a number of immune pathways involved in fighting SARS-CoV-2.
Vitamin D deficiency is frequent in Ireland and is most prevalent with age, obesity, in men, in ethnic minorities, in people with diabetes, hypertension and in nursing homes.
