Low Levels Of Vitamin D Linked To Long COVID


Long COVID risk has been found to increase with low levels of vitamin D, according to research presented at the 25th European Congress of Endocrinology in Istanbul. The findings suggest that individuals should have their vitamin D levels checked after COVID-19.


Post-viral fatigue is associated with a variety of infectious diseases and is increasingly coming into focus in relation to so-called ‘long COVID’. While most people who contract the coronavirus can generally expect to make a full recovery, some experience symptoms lasting weeks or months after the initial infection has gone. Extreme tiredness is especially common in long COVID.

Significantly, therefore, a systematic review published in the journal Nutrients in 2021 examined the feasibility of using high-dose intravenous (IV) vitamin C in the treatment of post-viral fatigue and long COVID. Reviewing 9 clinical studies involving a total of 720 participants, the authors found that treatment with vitamin C resulted in a significant reduction in fatigue.

Other symptoms such as sleep disturbances, lack of concentration, depression, and pain were also frequently alleviated. Noting that vitamin C deficiency has been demonstrated in COVID-19 and other acute severe infections, the authors suggest that high-dose IV administration of this vital nutrient may be a suitable treatment option for patients afflicted with these conditions.

To read how a recent meta-analysis of 11 clinical trials confirmed that vitamin C has ‘significant mortality benefits’ in COVID-19, see this article on our website.
