Vitamin D levels and COVID

    Hi All,

    I know this is well known, but nice to see it consistently validated.

    Recent (30 May) article in The Hindu (Indian media) discussing a recent study, published in Nature, on the impact of vitamin D levels on COVID infection:

    https://www.thehindu.com/news/citie...ovid-infection-nims-study/article34684271.ece

    "Dr. Maheshwar also observed that less than 5% of people contracted the COVID-19 if the Vitamin D level was more than 55 ng/ml in them. The mortality of COVID patients is almost zero if Vitamin D level was 60 ng/ml and it is very high if the levels are less than 30 ng/ml." (emphasis mine).

    Here is a link to the study at www.nature.com:

    I would like to know more about this too. On a recent interview, on YouTube I think, Dr. Kruse said something to the effect that “if your Vitamin D levels are above 60 ng/ml, you could kiss COVID and still not get it.”

    Was that hyperbole? My wife and I both have VitD levels over 80 (mine’s over 100, without pill supplementation), so I’m curious. I wonder how to confirm his claim. I suppose it would only take one case to disprove it. I imagine that has been done; I’m just not aware. Are D levels routinely tested among COVID cases?

    DrEttinger Choice, the only thing we control

    Observational report: I treat 75 patients per week with no mask. My office has never changed its schedule since COVID. I have traveled outside the States twice and in the states 4x, all flying. I have been exposed to active COVID and newly vaccinated patients. I have not had a sniffle. My Vitamin D is always between 47 (Winter)-90 (Summer) from Surfing. I also Take NAC w/selenium, which I have for 25+ years. Also, none of my patients taking one or more of NAC, zinc, vitamin D, vitamin C, quercetin, and colostrum contracted COVID, where non-supplemented family members did.
