Vitamin D Deficiency Increases Pneumonia?
According to a new study, seniors with vitamin D deficiency appear more likely to contract pneumonia. Researchers found that “the prevalence of vitamin D deficiency was ~80% in patients hospitalised with CAP (community-acquired pneumonia). Vitamin D deficiency was also a significant predictor of increased 28-day all-cause mortality.”
This study underscores the importance of sufficient vitamin D, particularly for older adults. If you aren’t sure, ask your doctor of chiropractic if you are getting enough vitamin D.
