Vitamin D Helps Reduce Severity in Asthma Attacks
There is something terrifying about a severe asthma attack when you or a child you care about cannot breathe. A recent article published in the Cochrane Library reviewed a number of studies on vitamin D and its effect on asthma attacks. The study concluded that, “people given vitamin D experienced fewer asthma attacks needing treatment with oral steroids.” It also reduced the number of attacks as well as the number of hospital visits. The indication is that vitamin D may offer some protection against the symptoms of severe asthma attacks. This will be especially important as we head toward winter when there is less sunshine and therefore decreased ability to get vitamin D.
