It’s a Pandemic of the Vitamin D Deficient: A few dollars of D3 in hospital reduced deaths 60%

It’s a Pandemic of the Vitamin D Deficient: A few dollars of D3 in hospital reduced deaths 60%. By Joanne Nova.

A new study from Istanbul shows that even if we negligently fail to correct Vitamin D deficiencies before people get sick, we can still save half of the ones who might die with a cheap vitamin …

The mortality rate in the unsupplemented group from 2020 was 11%, but in the supplemented group in 2021 it was 5.5%. Imagine what the mortality rate might be if these people weren’t deficient in the first place?

The study shows us that there is a causal connection between low Vitamin D and more severe Covid. It also shows what a train wreck our medical systems are. For the price of a few dollars we can free up a lot of hospital beds and stop a lot of deaths, and we’ve known this might be the case since the beginning, and we’re still not doing it? The incentives are so screwed in our healthcare systems that we’re waiting for doctors in Turkey to do the trials we should have done in February 2020? …

Vitamin D is more consequential than any co-morbidity except age:

People who had no comorbidities, who should have been better off, were twice as likely to need a long hospital stay as people with comorbidities who also got Vitamin D treatment in hospital. …

This new study shows that the supplementation of D during the illness changed the outcome. It’s likely that people catching Covid who are already deficient are going to have more severe cases, more organ damage and it’s no wonder they struggle to recover for weeks. …

Be aware … [that] optimal levels of Vitamin D are quite a lot higher than the levels that prevent rickets.

Vitamin D is cheap and easy to take. I’ve been taking 5,000 IU per day for weeks now. (Covid is due in Western Australia in early Feb., when the borders will be opened. However, just yesterday we found it had sneaked in on a backpacker, and so might already be here.) Will have my vitamin D levels tested next I see my GP.

The bureaucrats ban ivermectin and HCQ, ignore vitamin D, don’t urge us to lose a few pounds, and the WHO is whinging that vaccines are being wasted on booster shots in the West instead of being injected into virgin arms in the poorer areas of the world. They don’t seem to care about our actual health.

It’s as if the bureaucrats really just want us all to get vaccinated.
