Abstract

Hypertension is a chronic disorder with serious risk factors for clinically important events including myocardial infarction, heartfailure, stroke and death. It is estimated that, 1.56 billion adults will be living with high blood pressure in 2025 and one in three adultshas hypertension in world. Vitamin D is a micronutrient with important implications for human health and has recognized functionsin calcium and bone metabolism. Low 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels are related to higher prevalence of blood pressure and evidencesfrom meta-analysis of cohort studies showed that vitamin D deficiency, predicts enhanced risk of all-cause mortality, cardiovasculardisease, and hypertension. Several mechanisms proposed that vitamin D decreases blood pressure. However, more studies arenecessary to find the influence of vitamin D on blood pressure in normal individuals and patients with chronic hypertension.

Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education


High blood pressure is one of the most vital causes of early death worldwide and the problem is developing. Low
25-hydroxyvitamin D levels are related to higher prevalence
of blood pressure and evidences from meta-analysis of
cohort studies showed that vitamin D deficiency, predicts
enhanced risk of all-cause mortality, cardiovascular disease,
and hypertension. Several mechanisms proposed that
vitamin D decreases blood pressure. However, more studies
are necessary to find the influence of vitamin D on blood
pressure in normal individuals and patients with chronic
hypertension.
