    Dear Dr Patrick, I appreciate your discussions on the importance of Vitamin D and especially as I was born with Allergic rhinitis and chronic bronchitis. So respiratory health has been my achilles heal. A friend who also reads your posts has pointed out to me that Vitamin D can be dangerous in our Coronavirus world citing this below. Yet I can find no other such discussions.


    “ However, when the body is experiencing significant inflammation, such as can occur in some people who become severely sick from COVID-19 infection, vitamin D should be temporarily discontinued. This is because vitamin D can activate the specific inflammation pathway and inflammatory molecule, IL-1B, which characterizes and contributes to symptomatic COVID-19 infection. The vitamin D should be discontinued while symptoms are present and can be resumed upon return to health.”

    Please comment if possible. Best Regards Tom Dignan
