Deficiency of vitamin D inhibits insulin synthesis and secretion thereby playing a role in the development Energy Biotic of Type 2 diabetes. Later onset of Type 1 diabetes can be linked to deficiency early in life. Hemoglobin Ac1 is a measure of blood sugar control and in one study low levels of vitamin D corresponded to uncontrolled blood sugar.Supplementation of vitamin D and calcium has been linked to reduced risk of various cancers, including colon, breast, prostate and skin. A recent study showed a 26% decrease risk of breast cancer with supplementation of 400IU per day.
Vitamin D appears to control a gene linked to the development of MS. It is believed adequate amounts through supplements during pregnancy and early childhood may help prevent MS. MS is also more prevalent in Northern countries where there is less year round sunlight.A recent study of 31,000 people over the age of 50 were monitored for over a year and found that those with the lowest levels of vitamin D had 170% greater risk of heart attacks than those with the highest levels. Researchers also found low levels corresponded to an 80-per-cent greater risk of death and a 40-per-cent higher risk of coronary artery disease. Lowest disease risk was found with blood levels of 107 nanomoles per litre.
