Higher Level of Vitamin D Associated with Lower Risk of Developing Type 1 Diabetes

March 30th, 2013 by DoctorZaidi

A recent case-control study analyzed the data from healthy military service members between 2002-2008. Blood samples for 25 OH Vitamin D level of 1000 cases who later developed Type 1 diabetes, showed a clear inverse relationship between the level of vitamin D and risk of developing Type 1 diabetes. A serum 25(OH) D concentration ≥60 nmol/l was associated with a 3.5-fold lower risk of developing Type 1 Diabetes.
