Title: D vitamin status and 10-year estimated risk for Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease in asymptomatic women.

Introduction: Although evidence suggests a robust association between vitamin D status and several cardiovascular disorders, this association remains unclear in Mexicans, given the lack of studies in this population, especially in asymptomatic women with high risk for cardiovascular diseases. Objective: To compare the estimated 10-year risk for cardiovascular events according to status in serum D vitamin levels in asymptomatic women Methods: From January to November of 2016 we performed a cross-sectional study in asymptomatic women from a single center in Mexico City; clinical and laboratory data was collected retrospectively and included a lipid profile and 25-(OH) vitamin D3 in serum for all patients and the Vitamin D status was divided according to the following ranges: normal (> 30 ng/ml), insufficiency (20-30 ng/ml) and deficiency (< 20 ng/ml); the 10 year risk for Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease (ASCVD) was estimated with the AHA/ACC 2013 risk equation. Results: Fifty one women with a mean age of 59.5 years (SD ± 9.2), Body Mass Index (BMI) 25.4 m/kg2 (SD ± 5.2). Mean 25-(OH) vitamin D3 was 33.5 ng/mL (SD ± 13.9) and an average estimated 10 year risk for ASCVD of 8.1 % (95% CI = 5.6 - 10.7) and a proportion of high risk subjects of 37.25%.; all Vitamin D categories showed similar 10-year ASCVD risk . Also high risk and non-high risk patients showed similar levels on serum 25-(OH) vitamin D3 levels with 4.7 ng/mL (SD ± 14.6) vs. 32.8 ng/mL (SD ± 13.6), p=0.6. Conclusions: In Mexican asymptomatic women the 10-year estimated cardiovascular risk was similar in all groups; however we found a high prevalence of high risk for ASCVD events regardless of the D vitamin status.
