Just read a really good article about Vitamin D and type 2 Diabetics. The article comes from Tufts University . They have done or are doing a study on supplementing with Vitamin D for type 2 diabetics, found that by supplementing with Vit. D type 2's were better able to control their blood sugars, The vitamin D seems to work on the beta cells to encourge them to utiilize your insulin better. The article states that preliminary results are very encouraging. Nothing definitive for preventing type 2's from happening but research is in the early stages. Wouldn't that be a great breakthrough, an inexpensive supplement to prevent type 2 diabetes!!!!!!!!! Any way, in the mean time personally I am already taking vitamin D. The article doesn't give the dosage but I take 1000mg 2x/day. I wish you all good luck, Even if they only think it might help I'm all for it.
