Dr. Yüksel Büküşoğlu gave important information about the subject. Preventing vitamin D deficiency can reduce deaths and complications due to Covid-19 in half.
According to numerous scientific studies to date, it is known that there is a relationship between Corona virus and vitamin D. Dr. Yüksel Büküşoğlu said:
“Numerous scientific studies support that adequate vitamin D levels can prevent respiratory infections and also reduce the risk of viral infections. Vitamin D stimulates and activates the immune system against the virus in the body and has immune system-regulating defense effects. According to the studies done:
- 19 percent of COVID-80 patients have a vitamin D deficiency.
- People with adequate vitamin D levels can reduce the risk of developing severe COVID-19 disease by up to 75 percent.
- Preventing vitamin D deficiency can reduce deaths due to COVID-19 and related complications by half.
- Sufficient vitamin D level can reduce the need for intensive care by 25 times due to severe corona virus infection.
In coronavirus infection, sufficient vitamin D modulates the immune system and thus increases the clearance from the virus, while also preventing inflammatory responses that cause severe cytokine storm. In addition, vitamin D is known to affect the zinc metabolism in the body, reducing the rate of coronaviruses and increasing the clearance from the virus. In other words, it is thought that adequate vitamin D levels can strengthen the immune system and prevent COVID-19 infection and transmission of the virus. Most recently, a scientific study published in JAMA, one of the world's most respected Medical journals, suggests that adequate vitamin D levels in the body should be considered as a potential treatment strategy to prevent or possibly treat COVID-19. "
Dr. Yüksel Büküşoğlu said “It is very important here to know which vitamin D level is beneficial and which level can be very harmful. It is necessary to know that the level of vitamin D in the body above 150 ng / ml is completely toxic. However, levels between 60-100 ng / ml in the blood are very useful. So, you need to know from your own mind that taking vitamin D without consulting your doctor can be extremely toxic. In consultation with your doctor, it is necessary to measure the vitamin D level and take vitamin D supplements if necessary with his advice. " said.
Dr. Yüksel Büküşoğlu said, “In addition to eliminating the vitamin D deficiency in the body in order to prevent the complications caused by the corona virus, the intestinal flora must also be healthy; For this purpose, it is important to remember that it is also very important to eat fermented foods such as kefir, homemade yogurt, pickles, and foods rich in zinc and selenium, ”he added.
Lastly, he said that adequate vitamin D levels also have extremely positive effects on stem cells. Yüksel Büküşoğlu said that Stem Cell therapy can also be extremely beneficial in cases of respiratory failure and severe lung damage due to severe Coronavirus COVID-19 infection.
