- Answered 28 Jan 2020 Conflict of interest declaration: None A 2018 systematic review  “Effects of Vitamin D Levels and Supplementation on Atopic Dermatitis: A Systematic Review” concludes: “In children, the majority of existing literature confirmed a link between serum VD levels and AD severity. Weak evidence was found supporting improvement of AD with VD supplementation. Future large-scale studies are needed to support our findings.” And, in 2019, a RCT was published “Vitamin D Level and Supplementation in Pediatric Atopic Dermatitis: A Randomized Controlled Trial”  which reported: “Conclusion:: Although VD levels correlated with AD severity, VD supplementation did not significantly improve disease severity.” References 1) https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/30284328-effects-of-vitamin-d-levels-and-supplementation-on-atopic-dermatitis-a-systematic-review/ 2) https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/30336685-vitamin-d-level-and-supplementation-in-pediatric-atopic-dermatitis-a-randomized-controlled-trial/
