COVID-19 study shows most critically ill patients have vitamin C deficiency.

Researchers in Barcelona have found that the majority of patients who were critically ill with COVID-19 had low levels of vitamin C.



The researchers took blood samples from patients who were admitted to the intensive care unit with Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) caused by COVID-19 and found that up to 82% had low vitamin C, with around 18% of patients having undetectable levels of vitamin C in their blood.


73% of the patients require intubation and 22% of them died.


This is the latest of several studies into the relationship between vitamin C and COVID-19. Further research is needed into potential treatments for the disease.
