Low Vitamin D Levels Explains Most ESRD Risk in African Americans

Low levels of vitamin D may account for nearly 60 percent of the elevated risk of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) in African Americans. "Our study adds to previous evidence linking vitamin D deficiency to the progression of kidney disease and the need for dialysis."

We found that 25(OH)D deficiency was responsible for about 58 percent of the excess risk for ESRD experienced by African Americans. Vitamin D deficiency is a very common problem in the United States. In recent years, studies have linked low vitamin D to many different health problems, including diabetes, high blood pressure, cancers, and heart disease. The new results add to previous evidence that low 25(OH)D levels are an important risk factor for ESRD.
