TYPE TWO DIABETES IS BY FAR THE MOST COMMON TYPE. 30MILLION PEOPLE IN THE U.S. HAVE IT. TYPE TWO DIABETICS MAKE INSULIN BUT THEIR BODIES AREN’T RESPONDING TO IT. AND EVENTUALLY THE CELLS ARE EXHAUSTED AND BLOOD PRESSURE GOES UP. THAT’S WHERE SOME THINK VITAMIN D CAN HELP.

THERE HAVE BEEN A NUMBER OF STUDIES ASKING DOES SUPPLEMENTATION PREVENT OR REDUCE THE RISK OF DEVELOPING TYPE TWO DIABETES. THAT’S WHAT A NEW STUDY IS WORKING OUT. WHAT’S A POSSIBLE MOW MOLECULAR MECHANISM. BETA CELLS MADE FROM STEM CELLS AND FOUND VITAMIN D INTERACTS WITH GENES IN THE NUCLEUS IN A WAY THAT REDUCES INFLAMMATION. IN A LAB DISH AND IN MICE. IF YOU SUPPLEMENT HUMAN BEINGS AT RISK FOR DIABETES, IT WOULD REDUCE THEIR RISK OF BETA CELL FAILURE. BETA CELL INFLAMMATION. AND A PROGRESSION TO FULL BLOWN DIABETES AND PEOPLE AT RISK. HE DIRECTS THE DIABETES AND METABOLISM INSTITUTE AT MT. SINAI AND SAYS WHILE MAKING BETA CELLS MORE RESISTANT TO INFLAMMATION MAY STAVE OFF DIABETES, IT REMAINS TO BE SEEN IN HUMANS. RESULTS ARE EXPECTED EARLY NEXT YEAR. MANY INTERS THINK MOST OF US ARE SOMEWHAT DEFICIENT IN VITAMIN D. BECAUSE WE’RE TOLD TO AVOID THE SUN BECAUSE OF SKIN CANCER.
