BBC News has reported that “Vitamin D could help the body fight infections of deadly tuberculosis, according to doctors in London.”
“The idea of using vitamin D to treat tuberculosis (TB) harks back to some of the earliest treatments for the lung infection.
Before antibiotics were discovered, TB patients were prescribed “forced sunbathing”, known as heliotherapy, which increased vitamin D production.
Dr Adrian Martineau, from Queen Mary University of London, told the BBC: “This isn’t going to replace antibiotics, but it may be a useful extra weapon.”
It depends. It depends on how much vitamin D is provided and how early.
