NephroPal: Vitamin D - The saga goes on... - 0 views

    "Had enough about reading/hearing about Vitamin D? Well, it keeps on coming. And for my lack of surprise, the medical community in general is not catching on like wild fire. I really don't understand it.
    A recent study from the Heart Institute at Intermountain Medical Center in Salt Lake City (click) followed 27,686 patients greater than 50 years of age with no prior history of cardiovascular disease. The Vitamin D levels were checked and classified as such:

    * normal - greater than 30 ng/ml

    * low - 15 to 30

    * very low - less than 15

    The results of the study showed that patients with very low Vitamin D levels in comparison to normal had:

    * 77% greater risk of death

    * 45% increased risk of coronary artery disease

    * 78% increased risk of stroke

    * twice the risk of developing heart failure"
