FRONT LINE COVID-19 CRITICAL CARE ALLIANCE
PREVENTION & TREATMENT PROTOCOLS FOR COVID-19
FLCCC is including calcifediol (fast acting D) in their early Covid treatment protocol, which the body can use right away if sick from Covid, unlike Vitamin D3, which can take many weeks to build up to high enough levels, and can be hard to digest if seriously ill from Covid; though, extra high doses of D3 can be used if calcifediol isn’t available for those seriously ill from Covid.
They also say in their Covid prevention protocol:
Dosing recommendations for Vitamin D…. The optimal target is over 50 ng/ml; at this level the risk of dying from COVID-19 is extremely reduced. It may take many months or years to achieve optimal levels in patients who are extremely Vitamin D deficient.
Vitamin D3: For patients with acute COVID-19 infection, calcifediol as dosed in Table 3 is suggested.
Vitamin D: dosing varies (see tables below).
Vitamin D supplementation is likely a highly effective and cheap intervention to lessen the impact of this disease, particularly in vulnerable populations, (i.e., the elderly, obese, people of color, and those living in northern latitudes).
The greatest COVID protection benefit from Vitamin D supplementation will occur in individuals deficient in Vitamin D. Those individuals should take Vitamin D prophylactically on a longer-term basis. When a person with Vitamin D deficiency develops COVID-19, risks increase for developing complications, and Vitamin D supplementation subsequent to infection will have less of a response.
Dosing recommendations for Vitamin D supplementation vary widely. The optimal target is over 50 ng/ml; at this level the risk of dying from COVID-19 is extremely reduced. It may take many months or years to achieve optimal levels in patients who are extremely Vitamin D deficient.
It is therefore important that the optimal regimen for Vitamin D supplementation for the prophylaxis of COVID-19 is provided promptly, based on baseline Vitamin D levels (see Table 2). If baseline levels are unknown, the needed dose can be calculated from body weight or BMI (see Table 3).
