Here BB a new study
Among 26 patients not treated with calcifediol, thirteen required ICU admission (50%), while out of fifty patients treated with calcifediol only one required admission to the ICU, whereas the other patients remained in conventional hospitalization
So, that study is out of hard hit Spain, eh?
The vitamin D endocrine system may have a variety of actions on cells and tissues involved in COVID-19 progression.
• Administration of calcifediol or 25-hydroxyvitamin D to hospitalized COVID-19 patients significantly reduced their need for Intensive Care United admission.
Calcifediol seems to be able to reduce severity of the disease.
Multivariate Risk Estimate Odds Ratio for ICU in patients with Calcifediol treatment vs Without Calcifediol treatment ICU (adjusting by Hypertension and T2DM): 0.03 (95%CI: 0.003-0.25). Of the patients treated with calcifediol, none died, and all were discharged, without complications.
( I will add: !!!!!!!!!!!!! ) The 13 patients not treated with calcifediol, who were not admitted to the ICU, were discharged. Of the 13 patients admitted to the ICU, two died and the remaining 11 were discharged.
Our pilot study demonstrated that administration of a high dose of Calcifediol or 25-hydroxyvitamin D, a main metabolite of vitamin D endocrine system, significantly reduced the need for ICU treatment of patients requiring hospitalization due to proven COVID-19
. Calcifediol seems to be able to reduce severity of the disease, but larger trials with groups properly matched will be required to show a definitive answer.".................................................................................................................................. But NotBubba, this can not be a real study, can it? 25 to 1 in favor of the D or some variation of it, regarding a need for ICU, and an even greater difference regarding mortality? Because if true, what will that mean regarding needless deaths here in the USA, where most authorities have consistently refused to consider looking at vitamin D status
of people before they get sick, or at least correcting it once they do get sick? Not to mention the many other possibilities that might help even more, either alone or in addition to vitamin D, like vitamin C before getting sick, IV C after getting sick
, zinc + Quercetin which probably acts about
like zinc + hydroxychloroquine/HCQ( or who knows, maybe even better? ). If these recent studies are true and not fraudulent, wouldn't that mean the multiple thousands would have died needlessly, due to a refusal to even consider such cheap, readily available and relatively harmless approaches?
So, I think there is an incentive to never really consider such among main stream medicine. Whatever your reasons for refusing to recommend such approaches before hand, you sure would not want it to become known about
any 25 to 1 considering what that means has resulted.
My good high school friend just died of Covid-19 over in GA. I have not seen him in a few years, but he was a wonderful human being. And I am just simmering inside because I feel in my gut that if I could get hold of his medical records, I would find out that no one even considered
checking is D status, or zinc, or giving him some IV vitamin C with or without methyprednisolone, or of course HCQ + zinc early on(or instead Quercetin+ Zinc). Probably not a one was considered. And there was probably no one(not even his doctors) to warn him before hand to look into these matters himself.
I communicate with a lot of my HS friends on FB and by e-mail, and they are all thoroughly warned and informed, and they can listen or not(most do, I think). But Brewster was not in the internet world. And, it seems unlikely his doctors would have warned him. But, he was probably well informed about social distancing and mask wearing, but, if so, that did not help him. Frankly, the system just infuriates me.
