The global prevalence of vitamin D deficiency is more than 20%, and the main causes include insufficient intake, reduced absorption, abnormal metabolism, or resistance to its effects. The levels of serum vitamin D appear to influence cardiovascular risk, and the mechanism involved is linked to the transient outward current and the ultrarapid delayed rectifier K+ current densities, activated through the nuclear vitamin D receptor and Akt pathway. A significant number of studies have correlated vitamin D deficiency with an increased risk of developing cardiac arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death. For this reason, the purpose of this review is to analyze the relation between vitamin D deficiency and the pathogenesis of cardiac arrhythmias. Atrial fibrillation, increased QT interval, and QT dispersion were the most common findings associated with vitamin D deficiency. Due to the heterogeneity among existing studies, further research is necessary to confirm the existing data and to analyze its relationship with other types of arrhythmias

Risk of Atrial Fibrillation in seniors was 0.68 lower if have 10 ng more vitamin D – 13 studies – 2019

The relationship between vitamin D and risk of atrial fibrillation: a dose-response analysis of observational studies
Nutrition Journal volume 18, Article number: 73 (2019)

The relationship between serum vitamin D and atrial fibrillation (AF) or postoperative atrial fibrillation (POAF) in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) is still debated. It is also unclear whether there is a dose-response relationship between circulating vitamin D and the risk of AF or POAF.

The Cochrane Library, PubMed, and Embase databases were searched for relevant studies. We used a “one-stage approach” with a restricted cubic spline model to summarize the dose-specific relationships between serum vitamin D and AF. Relative risk (RR) was used to measure the effects in this meta-analysis.

In total, 13 studies were included with a total of 6519 cases of AF among 74,885 participants. Vitamin D deficiency (< 20 ng/ml) was associated with increased risks of AF (RR: 1.23, 95% CI: 1.05–1.43). In the dose-response analysis, the summary RR for a 10 ng/ml increased in vitamin D was 0.88 (95% CI: 0.78–0.98) and there was no evidence of a non-linear association, P non-linearity = 0.86.
In the age subgroup, high vitamin D (per 10 ng/ml increase) reduced the risk of AF in the

  • older group (> 65 years) (RR = 0.68, 95% CI = 0.52–0.89)
  • but not among young individuals (< 65 years) (RR = 0.87, 95% CI = 0.72–1.06).

In addition, a strong association was found between a 10 ng/ml increased in vitamin D and POAF incident in the patient after CABG (RR: 0.44, 95% CI: 0.24–0.82).

Our dose-response meta-analysis suggested serum vitamin D deficiency was associated with an increased risk of AF in the general population and POAF in patients after CABG. Further studies are needed to explore the age difference in the association between serum vitamin D level and the risk of AF and whether vitamin D supplements will prevent AF.
