Study To Determine If Higher Doses Of Vitamin D Improve The Mood Of Diabetic Women

February 24, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
Chicago nursing researchers have launched a four-year clinical study to determine whether vitamin D supplements will improve the moods of type 2 diabetic women between the ages of 21 and 75. The researchers hope to show that a higher dose of vitamin D is an easy and cost-effective way to improve mood, which in turn would make the women more likely to eat properly, take their medication, get enough exercise and better manage their disease overall. Women with low levels of vitamin D who receive weekly doses of 50,000 IUs of vitamin D3 are expected to have better a mood than those who receive weekly doses of 5,000 IUs.
