Abstract:

To determination of serum level of vitamin D in hospitalized patients with respiratory infections in infectious disesase ward of Tabriz. In a descriptive-analytical study that performed in Department of infectious diseases of Tabriz on patients with acute respiratory disease, serum level of vitamin D in hospitalized patients with respiratory infections in infectious disease ward of Tabriz evaluated. In this study, 50 admitted patients with respiratory infections and 50 healthy persons evaluated. Mean age of patients in case group was 61.66±18.23 and in control group was 58.80±12.89 year (P=0.368). 34 of patients in case group and 30 persons of control group were male (P=0.405). Mean Vitamin D level in case group patients was 10.82±16.85 and in control group persons was 25.58±13.98 year(P=0.082). 36 of patients had acute, 7 of them had TB, 5 of them had exacerbation of COPD and 2 of them had acute tracheobronchitis. 16 of patients had Impaired consciousness. Mean the activity in case group patients was 31.09±59.32 hour and the activity in control group persons was 57.69±54.27 hour and mean exposure to light in case group patients was 16.55±19.67 hour and the exposure to light in control group persons was 11.29±7.92 hour. Significant liner correlation was not found between the activity and exposure to light in the studied patients. Significant liner correlation was not found between the Vitamin D level with Consumption of Milk, Yogurt, Butter, Cheese, Bread, Fish, Neat and Eggs in the studied patients and significant direct liner correlation was not found between the Vitamin D level with consumption of hen in the studied patients. According to studies, in general it can be said that, the role of vitamin D in improving pulmonary tuberculosis and other respiratory infections has been demonstrated in cellular and molecular level. But it seems, Geographic region for the presence or absence of the sun, Medicinal doses of vitamin D, Serum levels of vitamin D, the immunity and nutritional status of patients, the presence of comorbidities and other factors have an effective role in the efficacy of vitamin D in the development and exacerbation of respiratory infections.
