Vitamin D for COVID-19
8th treatment shown to reduce risk in October 2020
*, now known with p < 0.00000000001 from 120 studies, recognized in 8 countries.
No treatment is 100% effective. Protocols combine complementary and synergistic treatments. * >10% efficacy in meta analysis with ≥3 clinical studies.
4,200+ studies for 70+ treatments.
Case report of a high-risk immunocompromised patient with multiple comorbidities that had a mild case of COVID-19. The patient had UVB phototherapy three months earlier and had normal vitamin D levels (92.2 nmol/L, normal range 50-125).

Vitamin D and COVID‐19 in an immunocompromised patient with multiple comorbidities—A Case Report
Martina Kralj, Hrvoje Jakovac
Clinical Case Reports, doi:10.1002/ccr3.4010
Routine 25-OH-Vitamin D3 measurement in COVID-19 patients could be of great importance, either for clinical course estimation or deciding on supplementation.
CONFLICT OF INTEREST None declared. AUTHOR CONTRIBUTIONS Martina Kralj managed the patient, collected the data, and contributed to the manuscript drafting. Hrvoje Jakovac interpreted the findings, reviewed the literature, drafted, and wrote the manuscript. Both authors have read and approved the final manuscript. ETHICAL CONSIDERATIONS The patient was informed in detail and he provided written consent.
