Overview Diabetes and vitamin D contains the following summary

  • 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 370 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
  • Appears that Calcium and Magnesium are needed for both Prevention and Treatment
        which are just some of the vitamin D cofactors

Pages listed in BOTH of the categories Diabetes and Vitamin D Receptor

Vitamin D Receptor category has the following
Note that T2 diabetes has a similar increased risk

210 items in Vitamin D Receptor category

Vitamin D tests cannot detect Vitamin D Receptor (VDR) problems
A poor VDR restricts Vitamin D from getting in the cells

A poor VDR increases the risk of 41 health problems  click here for details

VDR at-home test $29 - results not easily understood in 2016
There are hints that you may have inherited a poor VDR
You can compensate for poor VDR by increasing one or more of the following:

1) Vitamin D supplement
  Sun, Ultraviolet -B
Vitamin D in the blood
and thus to the cells
2) MagnesiumVitamin D in the blood
 AND to the cells
3) Omega-3 Vitamin D to the cells
4) Resveratrol Vitamin D to the cells
5) Intense exercise Vitamin D Receptor
6) Get prescription for VDR activator
   paricalcitol, maxacalcitol?
Vitamin D Receptor
7) Quercetin (flavonoid) Vitamin D Receptor
8) Zinc is in the VDR
Costs less than 1 cent per day
Vitamin D Receptor

See chart at the bottom of VDR page for Magnesium, Omega-3 and Resveratrol

There are studies evluating FokI, BsmI, ApaI and TaqI polymorphisms of the vitamin D receptor gene and susceptibility to DM1 (type 1 diabetes mellitus) with controversial results. This present study aims to investigate the association between FokI, ApaI, TaqI and BsmI polymorphisms of vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene and DM1 in children.
A literature search was performed using Medline, EMBASE, Cochrane and Pubmed. Studies were included in the study if at least one of FokI, ApaI, TaqI and BsmI polymorphisms was determined and outcome was DM1 at pediatric age. Data were pooled in a random effects logistic regression model and reported with 95% confidence intervals (95% CI).
A total of 9 studies comprising 1053 patients and 1017 controls met the study inclusion criteria. The pooled odds ratios of the FokI, ApaI, TaqI and BsmI polymorphisms were combined and calculated. Forest plots and funnel plots of the odds ratio value distributions were drawn. Our meta-analysis has demonstrated statistically significant associations between DM1 and VDR genotypes, BsmIBB(P < 0.05), BsmIBb, (P < 0.05), BsmIbb(P < 0.05), TaqITT( P< 0.05) and TaqItt (P < 0.05) in children.
The results indicated that BsmIBB, BsmIBb and TaqItt polymorphisms were associated with an increased risk of DM1, while BsmIbb and TaqITT had protective effect for DM1 in children.
