Double-blind Trial Vitamin D and Covid 19

The results of the first randomised, controlled, double-blind trial vitamin D and Covid 19 have been released.

This was a small pilot study however the results point strongly in the direction of the usefulness of vitamin D

 76 patients with confirmed Covid 19 admitted to hospital who also had confirmed viral pneumonia were split into two groups.

  • One group was treated with vitamin D
  • One group was not treated with vitamin D.
  • Both groups received up-to-date Covid 19 treatment.The outcome measures assessed were:
    Admission to the intensive care (ICU)
    and/ or
  • 50 patients were given vitamin D – on the day of admission, on day3 and 7 of their hospital stay and each week weekly until either admitted to UCU or discharged from hospital.
  • 26 patients did not have vitamin D.
  • Neither patient nor doctors were aware who was receiving vitamin D. .
  • Of the 50 patients treated with vitamin D
  • One person ( 2%) required ICU admission.
  • None died
  • All were discharged without complications
  • Of the 26 untreated patients
  • 13 (50%) required ICU admission.
  • 2 Died
  • 11 were discharged

Comment: This is  a small study but it seems pretty obvious what course fro action one ought to take!

Online medical consultation

News update January 2021

For the moment in the interests of social distancing and minimising any possible opportunities for Covid 19 to spread we are, at the Drummartin Clinic, not undertaking any patient contact lasting longer than approximately 10 minutes.

This decision was taken reluctantly but I think in the interest of public health and the health of our nation it is the only sensible course.

The following continue as usual :

  1. Online consultations
  2. Blood tests
  3. Ear ozone treatments
  4. Ozone joint injections

When you arrive for your appointment

Please phone us when you arrive outside the clinic , remain in your car and we will call you in as soon as we are ready for you – we want to keep everyone as far apart as possible..

For the moment we cannot do:

  1. Multipass ozone treatment
  2. Intravenous infusions e.g. Myers infusion, glutathione, phosphatidylcholine et cetera
  3. Ozone sinus injections – these have to be done without a mask and involve close face-to face contact between doctor and patient

Commencing middle to late February 2021

Drummartin Clinic Reception

Commencing middle to late February 2021

 We hope to resume all procedures including ozone treatments, ozone joint injections, ozone sinus injections et cetera.

Nurse Kathryn had her first Covid vaccination on January 16th and will have her second vaccination in mid-February.

Thus she will be free to restart procedures then

It is hoped that Dr.Magovern will have his first vaccination weekend January 23rd and so hopefully will be able to resume patient procedures in late February after his second vaccination
