Considering the effects of vitamin ' 'D, this study research was performed for investigating the relationship between vitamin D and ' 'the severity of COVID-19 in children. This cross-sectional study was performed on 101 ' 'children infected with the new coronavirus from September 2020 to October 2021. Information ' 'on vitamin D levels, demographic factors, and clinical and laboratory findings were ' 'documented in information forms and prepared for statistical analyses. The average of ' 'children was 2.85 ± 0.85 years. Low oxygen saturation was observed in 35.3% of infected ' 'children. The level of involvement was higher in subjects with vitamin D levels higher than ' '30 and less than 10 ng/ml (p = 0.04). Clinical signs in cases with deficient and sufficient ' 'vitamin D levels were more severe in terms of tachypnea and tachycardia (p = 0.01). Children ' 'with vitamin D lower than 10 ng/ml showed more frequency (p = 0.02). Cases with moderate ' 'vitamin D had fewer gastrointestinal complications (p = 0.03). Also, oxygen levels were lower ' 'in children who had low levels of vitamin D (p = 0.02). Vitamin D levels were associated with ' 'levels of involvement, tachycardia, tachypnea, clinical signs, gastrointestinal problems, and ' 'O2 levels. Moderate vitamin D levels in children are a critical issue that should be ' 'considered.</jats:p>', 'author': [ {'affiliation': [], 'family': 'Karimian', 'given': 'Pegah', 'sequence': 'first'}, {'affiliation': [], 'family': 'Tahami', 'given': 'Motahareh Sadat', 'sequence': 'additional'}, {'affiliation': [], 'family': 'Sayyahfar', 'given': 'Shirin', 'sequence': 'additional'}, { 'affiliation': [], 'family': 'Aghajani Delavar', 'given': 'Motahare', 'sequence': 'additional'}], 'container-title': 'European Journal of Translational Myology', 'container-title-short': 'Eur J Transl Myol', 'content-domain': {'crossmark-restriction': False, 'domain': []}, 'created': {'date-parts': [[2022, 4, 20]], 'date-time': '2022-04-20T08:40:47Z', 'timestamp': 1650444047000}, 'deposited': { 'date-parts': [[2022, 7, 8]], 'date-time': '2022-07-08T11:56:43Z', 'timestamp': 1657281403000}, 'indexed': {'date-parts': [[2024, 4, 23]], 'date-time': '2024-04-23T05:49:45Z', 'timestamp': 1713851385792}, 'is-referenced-by-count': 6, 'issue': '2', 'issued': {'date-parts': [[2022, 4, 20]]}, 'journal-issue': {'issue': '2', 'published-online': {'date-parts': [[2022, 7, 8]]}}, 'license': [ { 'URL': '', 'content-version': 'unspecified', 'delay-in-days': 0, 'start': { 'date-parts': [[2022, 4, 20]], 'date-time': '2022-04-20T00:00:00Z', 'timestamp': 1650412800000}}], 'link': [ { 'URL': '', 'content-type': 'application/pdf', 'content-version': 'vor', 'intended-application': 'text-mining'}, { 'URL': '', 'content-type': 'unspecified', 'content-version': 'vor', 'intended-application': 'similarity-checking'}], 'member': '2549', 'original-title': [], 'prefix': '10.4081', 'published': {'date-parts': [[2022, 4, 20]]}, 'published-online': {'date-parts': [[2022, 4, 20]]}, 'publisher': 'PAGEPress Publications', 'reference': [ {'DOI': '10.1016/S0140-6736(15)60454-8', 'doi-asserted-by': 'publisher', 'key': '50495'}, { 'key': '50496', 'unstructured': 'Cascella M, Rajnik M, Cuomo A, Dulebohn SC, Napoli RD.
