Role of #VitaminD in immunity during #COVID19.
1. Vit D is a major precursor for activation of T-cell (for any disease)
2. Vitamin D controls cytokines storm in COVID that causes blood clot & vascular damage of the organs like Kidneys, heart, Brain and ultimately death. Thread
STUDIES:
1. Review @SpringerOpen provides detail insight on role of Vitamin D in building immunity by modulating monocytes, denditric cells, T and B cells. link.springer.com/chapter/10.100…
2. Scientists @uni_copenhagen have discovered that Vitamin D is crucial to activating our immune defenses & w/out sufficient intake of the vitamin, T cells will not be able to react to and fight off serious infections in the body.

Asians & others with darker skin living in Northern latitudes are prone to Vitamin D Deficiency? Severe COVID19 males had lower vitamin D levels. (Females take more supplements) Vitamin D plays key roles in cardiovascular & immune systems 1/n #VitaminD

Vitamin D regulates the expression of PLC-γ1 in naive T cells & is key to T cell responsiveness in humans. Poor primary T cell response can affect immune responses to viral infections including influenza & coronaviruses. 2/n @Ms_Aflatoon #VitaminD

WEF coverage on #COVID19 is like a lesson learned of the #TheLeft championing #Globalist ideals thru the lens of COVID19 (catalyst) climate (destination)

#GlobalistLeft view the pandemic as a stepping stone to change policies on health, social, economics

First study looking at #VitaminD levels versus #Coronavirus case severity.
- nothing to see here, just move along... 😜

(p.s. supplementation may not do a whole lot - remember people with inflammatory issues have lower D status - but look at that correlation nonetheless)

@Acosta 1/ #bs💩. You and yours got creamed. Deservedly.

Now, why not do some real journalism? Are the #ICUs using #vitaminC drips to hasten the healing and protect the lungs of those on ventilators.

Your task, Jim, should you chose to actually do journalism, is to find the medical..
@Acosta 2/ articles that I am telling you are out there and see if #CDC offered guidelines for those patients. 2) More research—has the @CDC informes #AfricanAmericans that they need to boost their immune systems with mega doses of #VitaminD? Do the research. Find out why that is ...
@Acosta @cdc 3/ needed. 3) Why aren’t #Fauci & the #CDC recommending #HydroxychloroquineAndZinc? #azithromycin is helpful, but why are the other two necessary? So your research. Find out. I know—you need to. If you ( #MSM) DO know any and all of these things, and have not spoken out, the...

1 approach to understanding #covid19 infection is to examine co-morbidities & ask what's common?

Most prevalent Cov19 co-morbs:

1)↗️age
2)Hypertension
3)Diabetes
4)Cardiovascular disease
5)Kidney disease
6)Chronic respiratory disease (esp COPD)
8)Cancers
9)BMI>40
10)♂️>♀️ ImageImageImageImage
2/
These are diverse diseases & increasing age technically not a disease at all. However, there is at least 1 factor in common among all of the co-morbidities identified thus far:

INFLAMMATION
3/
A survey of the co-morbidities revealed another commonality; a close association w/ dysregulation of the pro-inflammatory, neutrophil-recruiting cytokine, IL-17A.

IL-17A is made by multiple immune cell types, including lung-resident innate lymphoid cells (ILC3s).

Folks keep citing this BMJ analysis to push for #vitaminD supps right now. It's not unreasonable to think about VitD but there's very imprecise language going around that "Vitamin D deficiency" is very widespread. This is hotly debated .bmj.com/content/356/bm…
Most folks are citing that many individuals are below 30ng/mL which is the threshold that @TheEndoSociety rec'd in 2011 following the 2010 @NASEM_Health report. There aren't trials treating folks with low -> 30+ng/mL to support the rec,it's mostly epi work and basic bio rationale
The BMJ paper comes in cause folks are saying that it supports a role for VitaminD suppvto reduce respiratory tract infections and may be useful against corona, and there's a high prevalence of VitD deficiency in the population. Makes sense?

Most people are vitamin D deficient. Studies show D staves off respiratory infection. Fact.

In my 20s I took a gram of vitamin C everyday, and didn't get sick despite being within a meter of coughing, infected people while giving guitar lessons.

#VitaminCtreatsCoronavirus
.. I stopped because I developed acid reflux (most likely from continually eating spicy Indian and Thai food), but I'm going to drink a glass of 1 grsm C powder mix now, because I'm sure across a few days it *will* make a difference in my immune response.
I've been taking D supplements, presuming how little I'm outside and the darkness of winter, I'm likely deficient. I'll have to manage reflux somehow with the C for now.

Efficacy is unknown, but it's at least something.

Vitamin C is very well researched,
