Vitamin D for Winter Wellness – £195.00

Course price £195.00

This course is for medical professionals who recognise that there are a multitude of benefits from vitamin D, some of which are commonly documented (such as reduced incidence of colds and flu). These now include the most recent summation that Vitamin D may play a role in the prevention of Covid-19.
Vitamin D is often described as the “sunshine vitamin”, and as such is not always available in countries like the United Kingdom, whereby we have reduced light from September to March.
There are also several patient populations (e.g. those who wear clothing that covers their skin for religious reasons, those who are restricted to indoor living, and patients who follow a diet deficient in Vitamin D) who will benefit from supplementation.
This course explores both oral and IM injection dosing options.
