Vitamin D deficiency is known to be common in patients with type 1 diabetes. Studies in adults have shown that vitamin D deficiency is associated with cardiovascular events such as stroke, myocardial infarction and peripheral arterial disease. However, the impact of this deficiency on vascular health in adolescents with diabetes has not been examined. Furthermore given that endothelial dysfunction is reversible, early detection of this process may have therapeutic and prognostic implications in this population.

The objective of this study was to evaluate vitamin B deficiency (particularly vitamin B6 deficiency) in diabetic patients in Germany in relation to the presence or absence of proteinuria,...
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of vitamin D3 and calcium supplementation in attenuating type 2 diabetes mellitus outcomes in ethnic diverse, diabetic patiens.
Reduction in vitamin D levels has been reported in subjects with recent onset type 1 diabetes. Several studies suggest that vitamin D supplementation in early childhood decreases the risk ...

The purpose of this study is to determine if daily supplementation with 2000 International Units of Vitamin D will improve hemoglobin A1c in uncontrolled type 2 diabetics.
Several studies have suggested the role of vitamin D in glycemic metabolism and its potential as adjuvant treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus. Thus, this review discusses the role of vitamin D in th...
Type 2 diabetes mellitus is a common disease, affecting up to 13.1% of the Portuguese population. In addition to the known micro and macrovascular complications, drug side effects constitute a major c...
Polymorphism in vitamin D binding protein gene may have an impact on serum vitamin D transport and thus may have relation with type 2 diabetes mellitus. In our study, we investigated the association o...
Vitamin D has been suggested as a protective compound for diabetes mellitus. Several mechanisms linking vitamin D to the regulation of the immune response support a role for vitamin D in the pathogene...
To assess if genotypes/diplotypes of vitamin D binding protein have any association with type 2 diabetes mellitus.
A subclass of DIABETES MELLITUS that is not INSULIN-responsive or dependent (NIDDM). It is characterized initially by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA; and eventually by GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; HYPERGLYCEMIA; and overt diabetes. Type II diabetes mellitus is no longer considered a disease exclusively found in adults. Patients seldom develop KETOSIS but often exhibit OBESITY.
The time period before the development of symptomatic diabetes. For example, certain risk factors can be observed in subjects who subsequently develop INSULIN RESISTANCE as in type 2 diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 2).
A subtype of DIABETES MELLITUS that is characterized by INSULIN deficiency. It is manifested by the sudden onset of severe HYPERGLYCEMIA, rapid progression to DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS, and DEATH unless treated with insulin. The disease may occur at any age, but is most common in childhood or adolescence.
A type of diabetes mellitus that is characterized by severe INSULIN RESISTANCE and LIPODYSTROPHY. The latter may be generalized, partial, acquired, or congenital (LIPODYSTROPHY, CONGENITAL GENERALIZED).
A life-threatening complication of diabetes mellitus, primarily of TYPE 1 DIABETES MELLITUS with severe INSULIN deficiency and extreme HYPERGLYCEMIA. It is characterized by excessive LIPOLYSIS, oxidation of FATTY ACIDS, production of KETONE BODIES, a sweet smell to the breath (KETOSIS;) DEHYDRATION; and depressed consciousness leading to COMA.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
