About This Project

We are trying to determine if supplemental vitamin D in heart failure patients will improve heart function and quality of life. This is a new and exciting area of research, as observational studies show that patients with heart failure and vitamin D deficiency have an almost 3 fold risk of death compared with those who are vitamin D replete, and risk of sudden cardiac death is 5 times greater among those with deficiency.
