Congestive heart failurePrevention

While there are no studies directly investigating the effect of increasing serum 25(OH)D levels to reduce the risk of congestive heart failure (CHF), the observational studies to date provide results supporting a role of vitamin D in reducing the risk of CHF.

Based on studies for CHF and other diseases, it appears that serum 25(OH)D levels should be kept above 30-40 ng/ml to significantly reduce the risk of CHF.
