A Seven Cent Vitamin Could Help Prevent…

Diabetes. Really. I am a type 2 diabetic and this could be a breakthrough. There’s a study starting to test the long term effects of vitamin D in people who at high risk for diabetes. Wow.

From this story “Can This 7-Cent Vitamin Prevent Diabetes?”

” About 20 US medical centers are participating in the National Institutes of Health-funded trial, known as the D2d study, which will include some 2,500 volunteers with prediabetes, a problem affecting 79 million Americans.

“Without an effective intervention, about 10 percent of people with prediabetes will progress to type 2 diabetes each year,” reports Anatassios Pittas, MD, co-director of the Diabetes Center at Tufts Medical Center, who has received a grant of more than $40 million over five years from the NIH as part of the D2d study.

In the double-blinded clinical study, prediabetic participants ages 30 and older will be randomly assigned to take 4,000 international units (IU) of vitamin D3 or a placebo. Their health will be tracked for about four years.

Im in the group that if I lost about 20 pounds I could be out of diabetes range…so maybe the Vitamin D would help me and others too. Yay science!
