Hi all. Has anyone else found that taking vitamin D supplements has been a trigger for SVTs .
My GP has wanted me to take calcium and vitamin D for some time. But I’ve resisted since I believe I get enough calcium in my diet and there’s some evidence that excess calcium can lead to hardening of arteries.
I have fairly asymptomatic heart failure and there’s some evidence that vitamin D can be beneficial to those with such heart conditions. So, since we’ve just come out of the winter season and with lockdown restricting access to sunlight, I decided to start taking vitamin D on it’s own.
However after a few days of taking the supplement I’ve just had a 2 hour bout of SVT, the first time I’ve had an extended spell in about 2 years. I can normally stop my SVTs within just a few seconds using vagus techniques but this one just kept going.
Anyone else noticed similar issues with vitamin D ?
