  • 1. Overview Cardiovascular and vitamin D There are many indications that vitamin D can both PREVENT and TREAT many cardiovascular problems How much vitamin D will PREVENT which cardiovascular problems under which situations Guess as of Nov 2011: 2,000 to 4,000 IU How much vitamin D will TREAT which cardiovascular problems under which situations Guess as of Nov 2011 > 10,000 IU As with many other diseases, VitaminDWiki expects that there will be a at least a 4X range of vitamin D due to: 4X range in the response in the vitamin D blood level for the same IU dose - for healthy, non-obese, people Also expect that co-factors such as Magnesium and Vitamin K2 (see below) will prove to be very important Intervention Clinical Trials for (heart OR cardiovascular) and "vitamin D" 267 as of Sept 2013 Intervention = give vitamin D and see what happens usually testing vitamin D vs placebo The majority of these intervention trials are for TREATMENT, rather than prevention We anticipate that many of the trials will terminate sooner than planned when they find so many people dying without vitamin D Is it ethical to not give vitamin D in osteoporosis trials– NEJM Sept 2010 example See also VitaminDWiki: Cardiovascular - general Cardiovascular system benefits from both Omega-3 and vitamin D – Dec 2012 14X more likely to die after first cardiovascular event if vitamin D deficient – Nov 2012 small study Cardiovascular disease 50 % more likely if low vitamin D – meta-analysis Nov 2012 Half as many heart deaths for those with high levels of vitamin D – meta-analysis Sept 2012 Vitamin D intervention reduced death due the heart failure by 32 percent – Feb 2012 All items in Cardiovascular and Vitamin D 220 items Echocardiograms confirm problems with low vitamin D – May 2012 30 ng perhaps best for cardiovascular - graphs from many countries - 2011.pdf file Chronic Heart Failure helped with 2,000 IU of vitamin D (PRA reduced) – RCT June 2013 Vitamin D is important for cardiovascular health – Sept 2010 nice chart and tables Review of heart failure and vitamin D mechanisms – Jan 2011 Patent for patients of Chronic Heart Failure includes vitamin D – June 2011 Increasing vitamin D levels will probably reduce CVD and mortality – June 2011 Lack of vitamin D associated with many cardiovascular problems – May 2011 Heart Failure associated with vitamin D deficiency – Feb 2011 96 percent of heart failure patients had less than 30 ng of vitamin D – March 2011 Cardiovascular disease may be reduced by vitamin D – June 2011 24X less Calcification of Aorta for PAD with modest level of vitamin D – Aug 2011 Cardiovascular problems for teens if low levels of vitamin D – March 2012 - Vitamin D, cardiovascular disease and mortality. 3 X increased chance of death if have asthma – study of 200,000 people over 10 years – Nov 2012 Cardiovascular Disease and vitamin D - April 2012 Coronary Artery Disease predicted by low levels of vitamin D – April 2012 Heart Failure early death 2X more likely if less than 20 nanograms of vitamin D – June 2012 Increased probability of chest aorta aneurisms with low vitamin D – Nov 2012 Higher vitamin D levels associated with fewer vein clots decades later– Jan 2013 Major Heart attacks occur 40 percent more often if vitamin D lower than 7 ng – Feb 2013 Cardiovascular disease 50 % more likely if low vitamin D - meta-analysis Nov 2012 Congestive Heart Failure patients helped with Vitamin D intervention – May 2013 Vitamin D decreases incidence of disease has the following chart which shows that heart attacks not decreased until 40 ng of vitamin D HOME ABOUTUSHELP0ShareShareShareShareShareMore Vitamin D WikiVitamin D Wiki The most vitamin D information on the web!
