LOW VITAMIN D IS AN INDEPENDENT RISK FACTOR FOR COVID-19 INFECTION

Dear my friends and fellow Colleagues, Here is an important update on role of Vitamin D in COVID-19. Low Vitamin D level is an independent risk factor for COVID-19 infection & hospitalization. Testing Vitamin D levels & keeping it optimal may be beneficial for overall health. Potential role of Vitamin D supplementation may be considered to prevent or reduce the severity of COVID. A study, FEBS Journal, July, 2020. Regards and thanks, Dr Sepuri Krishna Mohan.

Sir how covid 19 is infecting few doctors in a huge set up. While many doctors are testing negative in the same set up.

Dear Dr Nitesh Prasad, Very interested question indeed. This depends on several host factors including the Immune Status Other Comorbidities like HTN Diabetes CVD CRF CLD Malignancy The type of PPE kits they wear Methodology of wearing and taking off the PPE Kits The strain of COVID-19. If test results are negative, it doesn't rule out the possibility of COVID-19. Positive test results establish the diagnosis of COVID-19 and in case of Rapid Antibody testing it should be confirmed by RT PCR. Most important factor that decides is host Immune status. Regards and thanks, Dr Sepuri Krishna Mohan
