Serum 25(OH)D level on hospital admission is correlated with COVID-19 mortality

Geert Martens
Objective: Vitamin D deficiency was previously correlated with incidence and severity of COVID-19. We investigated the correlation between serum 25(OH)D level on admission and radiological stage and outcome of COVID-19 pneumonia. Methods: Retrospective observational trial on 186 SARS-CoV-2-infected individuals hospitalized from March 1, 2020 to April 7, 2020 with combined chest CT and 25(OH)D measurement on admission. Multivariate analysis was performed to study if vitamin D deficiency (25(OH)D < 20 ng/mL) predicts survival independently of...
