Higher Vitamin D Levels Decrease The Risk Of Adult-Onset Type 1 Diabetes

February 4, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
U.S. researchers who studied health data collected from eight million active-duty U.S. military personnel beginning in the 1980s found a significant association between adequate levels of dietary vitamin D and a reduced risk of adult-onset type 1 – or insulin-dependent – diabetes. The researchers said that the risk of type 1 diabetes seems to be higher even at vitamin D levels commonly regarded as normal. This suggests that a substantial proportion of the population could benefit from increased vitamin D intake.
