Vitamin D Supplementation May Improve Glycemic Control in Type I Diabetes
A prospective study was recently published that followed 80 people with Type I Diabetes and low vitamin D levels. The patients were given Vitamin D3 daily for 12 weeks. At the end of the intervention, the researchers found that Vitamin D supplementation improved blood glucose control in the patients. It is important to note that these patients were low in Vitamin D to begin with and so more studies are required, but nonetheless, it does show that Vitamin D can be helpful for those with Type I Diabetes.
