High-dose Vitamin D Supplementation on type 1 Diabetes Mellitus Patients: is there an Improvement in Glycemic Control?
Curr Diabetes Rev . 2021 Jan 5. doi: 10.2174/1573399817666210106102643
Diabetes is one of the health problems that lower existing levels of vitamin D
Diabetics need higher doses to achive the same level as non-diabetics
In addition, people with gut problems, such as many diabetics, need Gut-Friendly Vitamin D
Diabetics also need more than vitamin D mono-therapy
Weekly dosing is often Better than Daily
Diabetic inflammation reduced by Vitamin D (30,000 IU weekly) – RCT July 2020
Type 2 Diabetes inflammation reduced by 50,000 IU of Vitamin D bi-weekly and resistance training – RCT – June 2019
Many diseases, usch as Diabetes, need 40-60 ng
T1 Diabetes 3X lower risk if high vitamin D (over 40 ng) – Meta-analysis Nov 2020
Overview Diabetes and vitamin D contains the following
- Diabetes is 5X more frequent far from the equator
- Children getting 2,000 IU of vitamin D are 8X less likely to get Type 1 diabetes
- Obese people get less sun / Vitamin D - and also vitamin D gets lost in fat
- Sedentary people get less sun / Vitamin D
- Worldwide Diabetes increase has been concurrent with vitamin D decrease and air conditioning
- Elderly get 4X less vitamin D from the same amount of sun
Elderly also spend less time outdoors and have more clothes on
- All items in category Diabetes and Vitamin D
530 items: both Type 1 and Type 2
Vitamin D appears to both prevent and treat diabetes
- Appears that >2,000 IU will Prevent
- Appears that >4,000 IU will Treat , but not cure
- 90% less T2 Diabetes in the group having lots of Vitamin D
- Appears that Magnesium helps both Prevention and Treatment
- Many diabetics would be better treated if Gut-Friendly Vitamin D were used

Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome and Magnesium - many studies
- Step back to 1994. Suppose an epidemic struck the United States, causing blindness, kidney failure, and leg amputations in steadily increasing numbers.
Suppose that in less than a decade's time, the epidemic had victimized one out of every eight people
That epidemic is real, and its name is diabetes, now the nation's sixth leading cause of death.

Background: Some authors evaluated the effect of VD on hyperglycemia in T1DM, but the results remain controversial. This study aims to analyze the effects of high-dose VD supplementation on T1DM patients' glycemic levels, maintaining stable doses of insulin.
Methods: Prospective, 12-week clinical trial including 67 T1DM patients, who were supplemented with high doses of cholecalciferol according to participants' VD value. Patients with VD levels below 30 ng/mL received 10,000 IU/day; those with levels between 30-60 ng/mL received 4,000 IU/day. Patients who had not achieved 25(OH)D levels > 30 ng/ml or presented insulin dose variation during the study were not analyzed.
Results: Only 46 out of 67 patients accomplished the criteria at the end of the study. There was no general improvement in the glycemic control evaluated by HbA1c (9.4 ± 2.4 vs 9.4 ± 2.6, p=NS) after VD supplementation. However, a posthoc analysis, based on HbA1c variation, identified patients who had HbA1c reduced at least 0.6% (group 1, N = 13 (28%)). In addition, a correlation between 25(OH)D levels with HbA1c and total insulin dose at the end of the study was observed (r = -0.3, p<0.05; r=-0.4, p<0.05, respectively) and a regression model demonstrated that 25(OH)D was independent of BMI, duration of T1DM and final total insulin dose, being capable of determining 9.2% of HbA1c final levels (Unstandardized B coefficient = -0.033 (CI 95%: -0.064 to -0.002), r² = 0.1, p <0.05).
Conclusion: Our data suggests that VD is not widely recommended for glycemic control. Nevertheless, specific patients might benefit from this approach.Little Vitamin D benefit if not achieve a good level (T1D in this cases) – Jan 2021
