 Vitamin D Deficiency Linked to High Risk of Stroke

A new study conducted by researchers at Yashoda Hospitals and Nizam's Institute of Medical Sciences (NIMS) suggests that the risk of a stroke is high among people who are suffering from vitamin D deficiency.

The researchers observed around 250 patients over a period of two years and found that almost half of them suffered from vitamin D deficiency while other risk factors and risky behaviors related to stroke was also prevalent among the patients.


"Vitamin D is being increasingly associated with a host of ailments including cardiovascular diseases. Our study proves that in addition to other ailments, Vitamin D is also associated with strokes", lead researcher and senior neurologist Dr Jaydip Ray Choudhari said.
