Vitamin D supplementation may aid children with severe.
In a study examining the relationship between serum vitamin D and airway structure and function in 86 children, average age of 11.7 years, who were either severe, therapy resistant asthma (STRA), moderate asthmatics, or non-asthmatic controls, the authors found that severely asthmatic children had lower vitamin D levels than either moderate asthmatics or non-asthmatics and that higher vitamin D levels correlated with reduced airway inflammation and improved airway structure and lung function. The results suggest that vitamin D supplementation may be useful in treating pediatric STRA.
