Vitamin D Status in Hospitalized Patients with SARS-CoV-2 Infection

Retrospective 216 COVID-19 patients and 197 population controls, showing vitamin D deficiency in 82.2% of COVID-19 cases and 47.2% of population-based controls (P < .0001). Authors note: "We did not find any relationship between vitamin D concentrations or vitamin deficiency and the severity of the disease". While no association was found within hospitalized patients, there is an association with hospitalization, and hospitalization is an indication of COVID-19 severity.
19 of the COVID-19 patients were taking vitamin D supplements, showing lower ventilation and ICU admission, but no significant difference in mortality.

risk of combined death/ICU/ventilation, 83.0% lower, RR 0.17, p < 0.001, high D levels 35, low D levels 162, >= 20ng/mL risk of hospitalization * risk of death/ICU/ventilation | hospitalization.
risk of combined death/ICU/ventilation if hospitalized, 12.0% lower, RR 0.88, p = 0.86, high D levels 35, low D levels 162, >= 20ng/mL risk of death/ICU/ventilation | hospitalization.
risk of hospitalization, 80.6% lower, RR 0.19, p < 0.001, >= 20ng/mL.
risk of death, 3.7% higher, RR 1.04, p = 1.00, high D levels 2 of 19 (10.5%), low D levels 20 of 197 (10.2%), supplementation.
risk of mechanical ventilation, 75.9% lower, RR 0.24, p = 0.13, high D levels 1 of 19 (5.3%), low D levels 43 of 197 (21.8%), supplementation.
risk of ICU admission, 79.3% lower, RR 0.21, p = 0.05, high D levels 1 of 19 (5.3%), low D levels 50 of 197 (25.4%), supplementation.
hospitalization time, 33.3% lower, relative time 0.67, p = 0.11, high D levels 19, low D levels 197, supplementation.
Effect extraction follows pre-specified rules prioritizing more serious outcomes. For an individual study the most serious outcome may have a smaller number of events and lower statistical signficance, however this provides the strongest evidence for the most serious outcomes when combining the results of many trials.

Please send us corrections, updates, or comments. Vaccines and treatments are both extremely valuable and complementary. All practical, effective, and safe means should be used. Elimination of COVID-19 is a race against viral evolution. No treatment, vaccine, or intervention is 100% available and effective for all current and future variants. Denying the efficacy of any method increases the risk of COVID-19 becoming endemic; and increases mortality, morbidity, and collateral damage. We do not provide medical advice.
