Is D3 supplementation safe? Saw there is conflicting evidence that it can cause issues such as calcification of heart valves? Better to just use sun?

Vitamin D: Nope. You have this wrong or are reading untruths. You will have a healthier life if you normalize and keep your vitamin d normal. The sun is not necessarily the answer.

Treatment often involves anti-platelets (aspirin etc) aggressive diabetes control, cholesterol control, diet, weight loss. Talk with your doctor maybe second opinion if not happy. ...Read more
