Vitamin D levels may predict cardiovascular disease mortality in people with metabolic syndrome
Rancho Palos Verdes, CA (PRWEB) May 01, 2012
A number of recently published studies are shedding light on the cardiovascular health benefits of vitamin D found in Diabetes Support supplements.
In a study released by the journal Diabetes Care on March 7, 2012 it concluded optimal vitamin D levels lowered all causes of cardiovascular disease mortality in people with metabolic syndrome. “We observed a 75% and 69% reduction in all-cause and cardiovascular disease mortality, respectively, in those with optimal levels compared with those with severe 25(OH)D deficiency.”
In a previous study published in the journal Diabetes Care it showed a 24% reduction in diabetes risk for people with higher levels of vitamin D as compared with people with lower levels of vitamin D. “There are indications that vitamin D is of importance in glucose metabolism, and that supplementation with vitamin D may increase both insulin secretion and insulin sensitivity,” according to a report in ClinicalTrials.gov
Additionally, according to the Mayo Clinic, “In recent studies, adults given vitamin D supplementation were shown to improve insulin sensitivity.”
“Another study, led by Dr Jonathan Emberson (University of Oxford, UK), showed that there was a 17%, 24%, and 21% lower risk of vascular death, nonvascular death, and all-cause mortality in individuals with high serum 25(OH) vitamin D3 compared with subjects with low serum levels enrolled in the Whitehall study.” TheHeart.org
