Following the publishing of a review of clinical studies that connected low levels of vitamin D to an increased risk of heart failure, experts say that more doctors than ever are recommending vitamin D testing to their patients.
A team of researchers from the University of California, Los Angeles published a paper in PubMed, a website maintained by the National Institutes of Health. For the study, they reviewed previously published materials on the connection between heart failure and vitamin D deficiency. They found a strong correlation between the two.
Since publishing the article, the researchers say they have received a lot of attention from other medical professionals, and that many are interested to learn more about the benefits of this important hormone.
"The interest on vitamin D deficiency continues to escalate," said Robert Willix, one of the researchers. "The vitamin D story is now clear to most physicians who are recognizing it as an important pro-hormone that supports the concept that you can achieve a generalized effect and measurable results on health through a simple supplement."
