Boost your immunity during the Covid-19 pandemic

Lynne Hubbard, Principal Dietitian for adolescents and adults with EB working in partnership with DEBRA, discusses ways to boost your immunity during the Covid-19 pandemic. Many of the EB community will have met with Lynne, who is based at St Thomas' Hospital. Here she shares her top tips on getting enough vitamin d.

"Most of us get enough [vitamin d] by having time in the sunlight and synthesising it in our skin, however for people with EB, they're trying to avoid burning their skin or getting too hot and that resulting in blistering"

Watch the clip to find out how you can get vitamin d through foods, as well as what supplements to take to ensure you're getting enough.
