Multivitamin, Omega-3, Vitamin D Combo May Slow Progression of Diabetes

Development of diabetes is closely related to a person’s diet. A recent study suggests that a multivitamin, vitamin D, and omega-3 supplement combination may reduce the risk of developing diabetes.


Participants in the study included 1,018 people who were given either vitamin D drops containing 1,000 IU per drop plus a limited multivitamin (Vital 1) or the same amount of vitamin D, an extensive multivitamin and mineral, and omega-3s (Vital 2). All of the participants took their supplement for a total of 12 months.


At the conclusion of the supplementation period, the researchers noted increased vitamin D concentrations in both groups. However, only Vital 2 had a significant reduction in glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c), which is a marker of excess glucose in the blood over the long term, and a significant reduction in high-sensitivity C-reactive protein, a marker of inflammation.


They also noted that 8% of Vital 2 and 16% of Vital 1 participants progressed from normoglycemia to prediabetes/diabetes and that 44% of Vital 2 and 8% of Vital 1 prediabetes/diabetes participants regressed to normoglycemia.


Researchers from the University of Calgary led the study. It was published online ahead of print on November 7, 2017, in the Journal of Clinical Translational Endocrinology.


Previous studies have shown that multivitamins and minerals may aid in weight loss, reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, and improve general physical health. Other studies have also shown that the cells of people who routinely take multivitamins have a younger biological age.
