Irregular heart rhythm, low testosterone, vitamin D. Taking magnesium, sotalol. Treatment?

I have history of sudden cardiac death . Now have a very irregular heart rhythm. I have a defibrillator. In the past I have gone into Polymorhic svt, v fib, torsades, etc. potassium was low in the past buy I now take it and magnesium daily along with sotalol. I just found out that my testosterone level and vit d levels are low... Could this also contribute to my problem? I am 35 years old with 4 kids and am at my wits end!! Any advice?

Dear Sir/ Madam
welcome to HCmagic.
None of these two factors is known to be definitely associated with heart rhythm disturbances as you have mentioned.
Most important fact is that what is the exact diagnosis. If you have a structural heart disease or just electrical problems?
For low vitamin D levels and testosterone, please consult your internist.
