Compelling Evidence That Low Levels of Vitamin D Have a Causal Role In Development of High Blood Pressure


'New international research published in Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology has shown that low levels of Vitamin D is not only correlated with hypertension, but actually one of the causes.

An international study examining the relationship between vitamin D status - measured by 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25[OH]D) concentration and high blood pressure (hypertension) using mendelian randomisation of more than 100,000 people has suggested that low vitamin D may be causally linked to hypertension. The causal role comes from genetic research providing 'compelling evidence.'
