Summary of Sepsis and Vitamin D

  • Sepsis more likely in those with poor immune systems
    Infants, elderly, sick, those with low vitamin D
  • Severe Sepsis has been associated with low vitamin D in many studies
  • Vitamin D treats Sepsis (RCT- 2015, below)
    Reduced: ICU by 8 days, Hospital stay by 7 days, and readmission rate 0% (from 20%)
  • Many studies have found that a high level of Vitamin D also prevents Sepsis

VitaminDWiki recommendations for Vitamin D treatment of Sepsis in ICU

Conclusions and Relevance
In clinical data from 409 hospitals, sepsis was present in 6% of adult hospitalizations, and in contrast to claims-based analyses, neither the incidence of sepsis nor the combined outcome of death or discharge to hospice changed significantly between 2009-2014. The findings also suggest that EHR-based clinical data provide more objective estimates than claims-based data for sepsis surveillance.
