Higher CAD Risk Associated with Low Vitamin D Levels

In an angiographic trial of nearly 1500 subjects, investigators found that almost 70% of subjects had low levels of vitamin D. Investigators stated that those with vitamin D “levels low enough to be considered deficient had almost a 20% greater risk of the most severe level of the disease.”
