Low Vitamin D level increases odds of death from all causes.

A study published in the journal Archives of Internal Medicine found that individuals with low level vitamin D appeared to have a higher risk of death from all causes.

Patients were followed up a median of 8.7 years.

Those patients with lowest level of vitamin D had a 26% increase rate of death from any cause than those with the highest vitamin D levels.

Further studies are needed to confirm findings and establish the mechanism of the underlying observation.
