Epidemiologic evidence suggests that vitamin D status, as assessed by serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels, is associated with increased risk for diabetes, and that adequate intake of vitamin D may prevent or delay the onset of diabetes. Many individuals with diabetes have decreased levels of vitamin D, and lack of vitamin D may be associated with hyperglycemia, increased hemoglobin A1c, insulin resistance, and progression of diabetes. Optimal vitamin D status is needed to prevent adverse outcomes in diabetic patients. Increasing intake of vitamin D by diet, oral supplements and sun exposure may be easy and cost-effective methods to improve metabolic control and prevent diabetes.
Key Words: Vitamin D, Diabetes, 25-hydroxyvitamin D, Vitamin D supplement
