Calcification of the Arteries and Vitamin D Deficiency

My father recently had 2 recent heart surgeries due to calcification of the arteries that were leading to his heart beating inconsistently. Vitamin D deficiency has long been linked to bone break down and osteoarthritis. However, now it is also being linked to many heart conditions. It may be one of the most important vitamins in the body. Testing for Vitamin D is even more crucial as Vitamin D deficiency is beginning to be linked to a long host of other diseases as well. Vitamin D deficiency has also been linked to obesity.

Testing for Vitamin D deficiency should be done at least annually and at different times of the year. In the colder climates, Vitamin D deficiency is highest in the winter months since a great source of Vitamin D is the sun. It is so affordable to get your Vitamin D tested and so easy to do at that everyone should be doing this annually.
