Vitamin D is an important vitamin to many parts of your body including bones, muscles, and immune system. Vitamin D deficiency has been found in people at risk for diabetes as well as in people with pre-diabetes, type 1, and type 2. Research has shown that vitamin D improves insulin sensitivity and decreases inflammation. The effect of vitamin D on factors related to diabetes may depend to some degree on race and ethnicity.
Vitamin D may cause unsafe levels of calcium in the blood for people with kidney disease, sarcoidosis, histoplasmosis, and overactive thyroid. It may worsen hardening of the arteries in people with atherosclerosis.
