A new meta-analysis of over 2000 participants determined that children with pneumonia have lower vitamin D levels.
New research has found that vitamin D may be an effective adjunct therapy for patients with pneumocystis pneumonia (PcP).
Researchers using NHANES data have found that those with vitamin D deficiency are more likely to have (or have had) community-acquired pneumonia.
In a recent case-control study recently, researchers did not find any protective effect of prescribing vitamin D on the risk of developing pneumonia.
Low vitamin D levels are associated with an increased risk of pneumonia, according to new research published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health.
Researchers in New Zealand wanted to know if death rates from community-acquired pneumonia were related to vitamin D levels. Dr Cannell explains the study findings.
Researchers recently found that vitamin d deficiency may be associated with an increased risk of ICU admission and increased 30-day mortality among patients with pneumonia.
Pregnant women – like the rest of us – have a choice to make. Do we wait for the hundreds of randomized controlled trials that are currently being conducted to see if vitamin D helps, or do we act now, on what we know now?
