Event Title

Determination of Vitamin D in Patients Diagnosed with COVID – 19

Session

Medicine and Nursing

Description

Vitamin D is a steroid hormone involved in the intestinal absorption of calcium and the regulation of calcium homeostasis, bone differentiation and immune response. Vitamin D levels are a reflection of the synthesis of vitamin D in response to ultraviolet B (UV-B) exposure of the skin and dietary intake. The purpose of this research has been the quantitative determination of vitamin D in the blood of patients diagnosed with Coronavirus disease (COVID-19). A total of 44 patients were analyzed, 14 of them in the medical laboratory known as "DRI-LAB" (Prishtina – Kosovo) and another 30 in the medical laboratory known as "Olive - Medical and Laboratory" (Prishtina - Kosovo). In addition to the therapy prescribed by the clinician, some patients have undergone a diet prepared by a nutritionist and specifically for the purpose of this study. The methods used for the quantitative determination of vitamin D in the blood were FIA (Fluoroimmunoassay) and CLIA (Chemiluminescent immunoassay). The obtained results have shown that in addition to the therapy prescribed by the clinician, patients probably need an adequate diet prescribed by the nutritionist in order to improve up to the optimal values the vitamin D concentration.
