Vitamin D Cuts Kids’ Recurrent Ear Infection

Interesting Research.

Children with low levels of vitamin D and recurrent ear infections had a reduced risk for acute otitis media with vitamin D supplementation, researchers reported here.

The authors conducted a randomized study of 116 children with recurrent otitis media who were treated with daily doses of oral 1,000 IU of vitamin D or with placebo over 4 months and whose episodes of acute otitis media were monitored for 6 months.

Recurrent disease was defined as three or more episodes in the 6 months prior to the study or four or more episodes in the 12 months prior to the study.
