Vitamin D deficiency could be missing link in diabetes therapy
About the author: 

A vitamin D deficiency could be the missing key in understanding type II diabetes, the lifestyle disease

A vitamin D deficiency could be the missing key in understanding type II diabetes, the lifestyle disease. Although doctors understand the role that obesity plays in the development of diabetes, a vitamin deficiency seems to super-charge the problem of insulin resistance.
When the two are seen together, insulin resistance is nearly twice as common compared to obese diabetics with normal levels of the vitamin.
Researchers from Drexel University School of Public Health believe that vitamin D supplements could be a simple, and cost effective, way to reduce the severity of diabetes.
