Para prevenir ou tratar a infecção pelo coronavírus, administrando uma dose única de 600.000 UIs, para pessoas com 50 kg ou mais, o que corrige a deficiência de imunidade imediatamente e mantém a pessoa com níveis séricos no intervalo recomendado pela Endocrine Society (Estados Unidos) por 1 mês, após o qual a pessoa deve manter 10.000 UI por dia, artigo publicado:
For immediate normalization of vitamin D levels (so that levels remain within the reference range proposed by Endocrine Society in USA) for 1 month, an adult who has not been supplemented should take a single dose of 600,000 IU (six thousand international unities). This loading dose would be immediately absorbed by the subcutaneous fat tissue and will be slowly released into circulation throughout 30 days. Another loading dose may be repeated after 30 days If you start with 10,000 IU per day it will take as long as 60-90 days to achieve the normal range. Coronavirus is a public health emergency (!!!!!). Starting with 10,000 IU per day or giving a loading dose of 600,000 IU will certainly be the difference between death or life (respectively) por many thousands of people who are already infected (with initial symptoms or not) and will or will not progress into respiratory failure and death (respectively). Obese people may require more than 600.000 IU as a loading dose because they may have much fat tissue to absorb vitamin D and then release into circulation.
