There has been increasing evidence that vitamin D may have a role in modifying risk of diabetes. Vitamin D has both direct and indirect effects on various mechanisms related to the pathophysiology of type 2 diabetes, including pancreatic beta cell dysfunction, impaired insulin action and systemic inflammation. This article describes the biologic plausibility behind the potential association between vitamin D and type 2 diabetes and summarizes the current evidence from human studies that suggests but does not prove a relation between vitamin D and type 2 diabetes, and briefly reports on the potential association between vitamin D and type 1 diabetes.
