Abstract
Vitamin D deficiency , defined by a 25-OH vitamin D3 plasma level < 30 ng/ml, is highly prevalent in the population. Several observational studies have suggested that such a deficiency increases the risk of hypertension development. Vitamin D seems to have an inhibitory effect on renin secretion and might by this mechanism exert an antihypertensive effect. Recent randomized trials have failed however to demonstrate a blood pressure lowering effect of vitamin D supplementation.
