According to news originating from Cambridge, United Kingdom, vitamin D deficiency has been linked to the onset of diabetes. This article summarises how Vitamin D Helps maintain the normal release of insulin.
Diabetes is initiated by insulin resistance. The body can overcome this resistance by releasing more insulin, thus preventing hyperglycaemia. But as hyperactivity increases, the body experiences signalling that results in cell death and the onset of diabetes.
Vitamin D deficiency contributes to both the initial insulin resistance and the subsequent onset of diabetes caused by beta-cell death.
What is remarkable is just how many cellular processes are maintained by Vitamin D. When Vitamin D is deficient, many of these processes begin to decline and this sets the stage for the onset of diseases such as diabetes."
