Might it just be that those 45-50+ that have low levels are on their way to some yet undiagnosed health problems, that can take time to develop, whilst those that monitor their health well and therefore keep up their levels are less likely to become ill all round?

That and/or ones natural Vitamin D levels decrease with age, again, past 45+, the same age group of people with underlying conditions or seniors. Many of whom may not yet be advised by their doctors to supplement.



That all being said, I wouldn't automatically add Vitamin D levels without blood tests to determine if one is low. In northern climates they suggest it during the winter months but those past 50 are still often naturally lower even in the summer months.

Definition of sike

You ignorant Yank

Sike
A term used when saying something you don't really mean.

Psych
Often believed, by those who don't understand the term's origin, to be spelt (or spelled, for the American audience) 'sike'.

Deriving from the word psychology, psych is a term used to indicate that whatever the person speaking just said was done so purely to mess with the listener's mind, to 'psych' them out, if you will.

Does it also work with strain we aren't allowed to name?

Point of order please.

It certainly is full potato ignorant, however until it is doxxed we can't be sure it is a yank.

Well, what I got from that is that normal levels are helpful as opposed to a deficiency which may exacerbate covid (&/or possibly would exacerbate whatever ill health condition someone is dealing with, potentially).

That all being said, I wouldn't automatically add Vitamin D levels without blood tests to determine if one is low. In northern climates they suggest it during the winter months but those past 50 are still often naturally lower even in the summer months.

Absolutely right. Too much of Vitamin D is harmful. One would want to be careful.

In Murica we put /s at the end to indicate sarcasm.
If that fucking helps.
Not a misspelled psych.


We? Speak for yourself. The term Murica is so disparaging.

murica
The way un-educated Americans (generally rednecks, hicks, republicans, or very patriotic people) say America.

No I understand that and what you were saying.

My point only being that if one has a deficiency in that particular area, I would guess its likely not the only area that they do.
If so can the covid illness really be put down to just lower counts of D or are there other things going on that also parlay themselves into a lowered health condition.
Without further studies we are left not knowing.

Whatever happened to the earlier claims that Vapers seemed to be somewhat protected from Covid?

It is "Murika" any way. Disparaging? I suppose to a "patriot". Bur what is patriotism, but fervent nationalism? And, why? Loyalty to "ideals"? Where is America living up to those ideals.
I'm out.....have some fun. Eh?
