Vitamin D is needed before most surgeries – many studies and RCTs

Summary of 20+ studies

  1. Loading doses of 300,000 IU Vitamin D have been frequently used for adults
    More than 300,000 IU is sometimes needed for adults
    infants-Children might only need 10,000 IU per kg
  2. Loading dose for the ICU should be given in a single day
    An oral dose does not result in a full response for 3+ days
    An injection does not result in a full response for several weeks
  3. A gut-friendly form of Vitamin D should be used if patient has poor digestion
    Nanoemulsion sublingual or topical are fast acting (hours)
      Any form of vitamin D given just before/after surgery is better than none
  4. All of the above also applies to ICU (Intensive Care Unit)
    4.8 X more likely to die within 28 days of ICU if low Vitamin D - Jan 2024
  5. Vitamin D3, not Vitamin D2 should be used
  6. Note: Some Chemotherapies are amplified so much by Vitamin D as to result in death if dose size is not decreased
