Vitamin D

Intensivists at CHEO study the role of vitamin D in children who are hospitalized and severely ill. Their research has recently demonstrated that lower levels of vitamin D worsen illness severity and prolong the length of stay in the Intensive Care Unit. Current and future research will focus on how to best optimize the vitamin D status of children admitted to the intensive care unit through pre-illness supplementation and post-illness rapid restoration strategies.
