Vitamin D can be deficient in COVID-19 hospitalized patients

Millions of people in various countries are spending time indoors due to coronavirus pandemic.

Lack of sunlight on the skin may mean that many of us may not be getting enough vitamin D.

Public Health England recently asked people to consider taking vitamin D supplements.

They recommend taking 10 micrograms of vitamin D a day. This advice includes pregnant and lactating women.

Babies up to the age of 1 year need 8.5 to 10 micrograms of vitamin D a day.

Vitamin D helps regulate calcium and phosphate levels in our bodies.

Appropriate calcium levels help keep our bones, teeth, and muscles healthy.

Vitamin D is also critical for a balanced immune response to infections.
