According to data published, intakes greater than 500 IU/day reduced the risk of Type 2 Diabetes by 13%. When grouping people according to levels of vitamin D in the blood (as 25-hydroxyvitamin D, the inactive "storage" form), those who had more than 25 ng/mL, had a 43% lower risk of Type 2 Diabetes than people with the lowest blood levels (less than 14 ng/mL).
|To convert ng/mL (conventional US|
units) to nmol/L (the international
standard), multiply by a factor of 2.5
