Chronic Heart Failure not treated by Vitamin D, if dose size is ignored – meta-analysis Oct 2015
Risk of Cardiac failure reduced 20 percent by 800 IU of vitamin D and Calcium – meta-analysis July 2014
Chronic Heart Failure improved with 4,000 IU daily for a year – RCT April 2016
Seniors with Heart Failure helped by daily 4,000 IU of vitamin D (increase 16 ng) – RCT Aug 2014
Death in less than 2 years of Heart Failure associated with low vitamin D - April 2012
Heart Failure Quality of Life greatly improved by 10,000 IU of vitamin D – RCT Oct 2017
Heart failure among 137 seniors 12X more likely if low vitamin D – Aug 2017
PTH reduced 3.5 pmol by vitamin D intervention which added 22 ng – meta-analysis June 2014
Acute Heart Failure length of stay and readmission rates cut in half if high vitamin D – Aug 2017

- Cholesterol is needed to produce both Vitamin D and Cortisol
- Overview Cholesterol and vitamin D
- Statins and vitamin D statins often reduce levels of vitamin D
- Statin side-effects are reduced by Vitamin D – US patent Application – April 2019
25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) plays a crucial role in human homeostasis. Its deficiency (vitamin D deficiency-VDD), being common in European population, combined with elevated concentration of parathyroid hormone (PTH), represents a vicious cycle of mechanisms leading to heart failure (HF). Despite several papers published in that field, the effect of VDD and PTH concentration on cardiovascular system remains unequivocal; thus, the aim of the study was to compare these data among HF and non-HF patients being prospectively enrolled into the study during hospital stay in the cardiology ward.
Patients with HF had higher PTH concentration (85.0 ± 52.6 versus 64.5 ± 31.7, p ≤ 0.02) compared to non-HF patients.
Mean PTH values were associated with the clinical status expressed by the New York Heart Association class (NYHA class)
- "III"-85.59, and
- "IV"-144.37 pg/ml, p ≤ 0.00004).
- neither 25(OH)D (31.5 versus 29.7 ng/ml, p ≤ ns)
- nor phosphorus (P) (1.23 versus 1.18 mmol/l, p ≤ ns)
- nor total calcium (Ca2+) concentration (2.33 versus 2.37 mmol/l, p ≤ ns)
differed among the groups.
Reassuming PTH serum concentration in contrary to 25(OH)D, P and Ca2+ are significantly raised among the patients with HF and shows significant relationship with the clinical status expressed by the NYHA class.
