Study shows vitamin D deficiencies may impact onset of autoimmune lung disease.

Researchers evaluated 118 patients. Overall, those with connective tissue disease-related Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD) were more likely to have vitamin D deficiency—52 percent versus 20 percent—and insufficiency—79 percent versus 31 percent—than other forms of ILD.
