Low levels of the “Sunshine Vitamin” vitamin D is tied to poor blood sugar control and type 2 diabetes risk, according to researchers from Tufts University.

The scientists investigated blood levels of vitamin D and compared them to risk of developing type 2 diabetes over a 5-year follow-up period. It was found that adults with low levels of vitamin D had a 57% higher risk of developing the disease.

The scientists note that those with existing type 2 diabetes should be screened for low vitamin D levels in order to boost blood glucose control. They note that low vitamin D levels increase inflammation – a harmful process that makes blood sugar harder to manage.
