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

  • Note – The study showing the most benefit happens to have used a lot of vitamin D (50,000 IU every 2 weeks: Razzaghi doi: 10.1016/j.jdiacomp.2016.06.017)

Vitamin D has been proposed to have anti-inflammatory properties; however, the effect of vitamin D supplementation on inflammation in type 2 diabetes has not been established.

The aim of this systematic review and meta-analysis was to examine the effect of vitamin D supplementation on inflammatory markers in patients with type 2 diabetes and to identify relevant gaps in knowledge.

MEDLINE, CINAHL, Embase, and EBM Reviews were searched systematically from inception to January 25, 2017.

Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) investigating the effects of vitamin D supplementation (any form, route, and duration, and with any cosupplementation) compared with placebo or usual care on inflammatory markers in patients with type 2 diabetes were selected.

Study and sample characteristics and aggregate outcome data were extracted, risk of bias was determined, and quality of evidence was assessed using the Grading of Recommendations, Assessment, Development, and Evaluation (GRADE) approach.

Twenty-eight RCTs were included, 20 of which had data available for pooling. In meta-analyses of 20 RCTs (n = 1270 participants), vitamin D-supplemented groups had lower levels of C-reactive protein (standardized mean difference [SMD] -0.23; 95%CI, -0.37 to -0.09; P = 0.002) and tumor necrosis factor α (SMD -0.49; 95%CI, -0.84 to -0.15; P = 0.005), a lower erythrocyte sedimentation rate (SMD -0.47; 95%CI, -0.89 to -0.05; P = 0.03), and higher levels of leptin (SMD 0.42; 95%CI, 0.04-0.81; P = 0.03) compared with control groups. No differences were observed for adiponectin, interleukin 6, or E-selectin (all P > 0.05). In meta-regression and subgroup analyses, age, sex, body mass index, duration of diabetes, baseline vitamin D status, and dose and duration of supplementation did not alter the results.

This meta-analysis provides level 1 evidence that vitamin D supplementation may reduce chronic low-grade inflammation in patients with type 2 diabetes.
