Vitamin D May Improve Blood Sugar Health


Vitamin D plays a key role in maintaining the health of bones and
teeth, supporting the immune system, brain, and nervous system, and regulating
insulin levels. Now a new study suggests that supplementation with vitamin D3
may help slow the progression of diabetes in those newly diagnosed or with
prediabetes.





Researchers from Université Laval recruited 96 people newly
diagnosed with diabetes or with prediabetes to participate in the study. Participants
were given 5,000 IU of vitamin D3 or a placebo daily for 6 months. The researchers
assessed markers of insulin function and glucose metabolism at baseline and at
6 months





After 6 months, the participants in the vitamin D3 group had
significantly increased peripheral insulin sensitivity and ?-cell function. The
researchers stated that this suggests vitamin D3 supplementation may help slow
metabolic deterioration.





The study was published online ahead of print on August 12, 2019
in the European
Journal of Endocrinology
