"In adults with type 1 and type 2 diabetes, both high and low levels of serum vitamin D are associated with cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy, according to an analysis of pooled patient data."
“The D2d study aims to definitively answer that question, can vitamin D reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes?"
"vitamin D has emerged as a potential determinant of type 2 diabetes risk."
"In a study of 118 people, those with low vitamin D levels were more likely to have type 2 diabetes, pre-diabetes or metabolic syndrome, regardless of their weight."
"People with low levels of vitamin D appear to have an increased risk for type 2 diabetes, even if they aren't overweight or obese, a new study suggests."
"Vitamin D and calcium supplementation along with diet and exercise may prevent type 2 diabetes in prediabetic individuals who have insufficient vitamin D in their bodies, a study from India suggests"
"There is intriguing research suggesting that supplementing with vitamin D may help improve some of the aspects associated with T2D. Studies have shown that vitamin D supplementation improves insulin sensitivity and decreased blood sugar levels."
"New study finds adults with diabetes who have either high or low vitamin D levels could have an increased risk of cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy (CAN)."

"It's amazing that something so simple could make such a difference. The patches work great!!"
""preventing many diseases can be as simple as going outside.
Recommendations from Dr. Holick:
- - Follow the "no sunburn" rule. He advises people to spend one-half the amount of time in the sun that it would take to develop a mild sunburn.
- - Get sun exposure between 10 AM and 3 PM when the sun's rays are the strongest.
- - Keep track of the time. People with dark or darker skin can spend about 30 minutes in the sun, while fair-skinned people should restrict it to about 10 minutes.
- - Do this three times a week, if possible.
- - Don't wear sunscreen (which inhibits Vitamin D formation) during this time, except on your face – very little Vitamin D is produced through exposing the face to the sun, plus it leads to wrinkles. Wear sunscreen the rest of the time.
- - Take Vitamin D during times when sun exposure isn't possible."
