A new meta-analysis of prospective studies published in the journal Diabetes Care confirms that low vitamin D is associated with an increased risk of developing type II diabetes (T2D).

To date, there have been many cross-sectional studies examining the relationship between vitamin D and T2D. These studies have shown an association between low vitamin D and impaired b-cell function, insulin resistance, and impaired glucose intolerance. However, these types of cross-sectional studies do not give us great insight on whether low vitamin D is associated with an increased risk of developing T2D months or years later.
