Vitamin D May Be Tied to Heart Disease Via Genes - Heart Disease and Other Cardiovascul... - 0 views

    "THURSDAY, Dec. 3 (HealthDay News) -- New research points to the possibility of a genetic link between vitamin D and heart disease.

    People with high blood pressure who had a gene variant that reduces vitamin D activation in the body were found to be twice as likely as those without the variant to have congestive heart failure, the study found.

    The finding may lead to a way to identify people at increased risk for heart disease, according to Robert U. Simpson, an assistant professor of pharmacology at the University of Michigan Medical School and his research colleagues.

    They analyzed the genetic profiles of 617 people. One-third had hypertension, one-third had hypertension and congestive heart failure, and the remaining third served as healthy controls.

    The researchers found that a variant in the CYP27B1 gene was associated with congestive heart failure in people with hypertension. The study is in the November issue of Pharmacogenomics."

    Association of vitamin D deficiency with heart failure and sudden cardiac death in a large cross-sectional study of patients referred for coronary angiography.
    Pilz S, März W, Wellnitz B, Seelhorst U, Fahrleitner-Pammer A, Dimai HP, Boehm BO, Dobnig H.
    J Clin Endocrinol Metab. 2008 Oct;93(10):3927-35. Epub 2008 Aug 5.
    PMID: 18682515
    doi:10.1210/jc.2008-0784

    Conclusions: Low levels of 25(OH)D and 1,25(OH)2D are associated with prevalent myocardial dysfunction, deaths due to heart failure and SCD. Interventional trials are warranted to elucidate whether vitamin D supplementation is useful for treatment and/or prevention of myocardial diseases.

    Egg consumption and risk of heart failure in the Physicians' Health Study.
    Djoussé L, Gaziano JM.
    Circulation. 2008 Jan 29;117(4):512-6. Epub 2008 Jan 14.
    PMID: 18195171
    doi: 10.1161/CIRCULATIONAHA.107.734210

    CONCLUSIONS: Our data suggest that infrequent egg consumption is not associated with the risk of HF. However, egg consumption of > or = 1 per day is related to an increased risk of HF among US male physicians.

    Nut consumption and risk of heart failure in the Physicians' Health Study I.
    Djoussé L, Rudich T, Gaziano JM.
    Am J Clin Nutr. 2008 Oct;88(4):930-3.
    PMID: 18842778

    Conclusion: Our data do not provide evidence for an association between nut consumption and incident heart failure in US male physicians. However, our data cannot rule out possible benefits of nut consumption on subtypes of heart failure not prevalent in this cohort.
