Residents of Syracuse, a city located within Onondaga County in Central New York, and the doctors who care for them, should pay close attention vitamin D levels. A recent study showed a connection between vitamin D, strokes, and heart disease. This is an important development, because the failure to diagnose a stroke, and the failure to diagnose heart disease can have serious consequences, including death.
According to the study, people over age 50 with low vitamin D levels were 45% more likely to develop coronary artery disease, which can cause a heart attack or other heart failure. They were also 78% more likely to have a stroke, and were 77% more like to die early than those with normal levels.
