I'm new in the forum and I just noticed in few websites:
A New Look at Vitamin D
Vitamin D may be one of the keys to fighting diabetes
that Vitamin D may be helpful for preventing Type I Diabetes. Can it also be helpful if you are already suffering from Type I Diabetes, and even a high one? Please post your experiences if you took some Vitamin D drugs or somehow consume more Vitamin D.

Shanu, a blood test in January showed that my body did not have enough vitamin D so my doctor told me to take 1000 mg of it each day. So I have taken vitamin D for 8 months now. My Type 1 diabetes is the same, very stable but I don't think the vitamin D has changed anything. I do not have any more information than that.

Well that's a bad news, I thought I may have got something for improvement. The sites say that Vitamin D is helpful for pancreas, may be they are not helpful in curing but may be for controlling.

I have not seen a direct correlation between Vitamin D and blood sugars. I wouldnt think they are directly related!
As I said, that I read that it is helpful for pancreas. But the question is that should I take Vitamin D using drugs after consulting from my doctor?

Diabetics in particular should consult their Doctors before taking any drugs prescription and non-prescription including Vitamins.


Eating a balanced diet with variety is important. These are some sources of Vitamin D.

Exposure to the sun?15 minutes a day is enough. The body produces it?s own Vitamin D this way. Vitamin D fortified foods.

Butter, cream, yogurts, cheese, milk, margarine, oysters, fortified cereals, fatty fish like salmon, sardines, catfish, tuna(fresh or canned in own oils), herring and eggs. Cod liver oil or capsules.

When a Person eats too much Vitamin D then this can cause too much calcium in the blood which may result in the heart and lungs not functioning properly.

Too much Vitamin D in a body can cause vomiting, kidney stones and also muscle weakness.
