Decreased survival in diabetic patients with pancreatic cancer

As reported in the British Journal of Cancer, patients with diabetes (n=62) are at increased risk of death from pancreatic cancer overall (HR=1.52) and within 3 years of diagnosis (HR=1.45).

Parenteral vitamin D improves insulin sensitivity

As reported in Swiss Medical Weekly, supplemental vitamin D3 (300,000 IU im) in patients (n=55) with T2DM of > 10 y duration resulted in a 12.8% decrease in HOMA-IR at 6 months compared to an increase of 10% in patients who received placebo.

Low vitamin D levels increase risk of GDM

As reported in Acta Diabetologica, the OR for developing gestational diabetes mellitus was 1.48 for each 1 SD decrease in the 25OHD level. A decrease in 25OHD was also shown to be associated with increased insulin resistance in the second trimester.
