Taking Vitamin D as Child May Reduce Type 1 Diabetes Risk

Study suggests that vitamin D can significantly reduce the risk of developing type 1 diabetes among children. And as the sunlight is the natural source of vitamin D, a well exposure in the sunlight can be helpful to reduce the diabetes risk. Perhaps this is the reason of why children in the northern part of the world are more subjected to diabetes than the children of other parts of the world.

The study, published in the Health Day suggests that children in a sunny climate absorb more vitamin D from the sunlight that in turn helps to prevent type 1 diabetes.

John Baffa, physician and health blogger opined that the study is another step to the diabetes research worldwide. Thus the study supports the previous studies on the same diabetes and vitamin D relation.

It can be added that type 1 diabetes affects millions of people in America. This number is likely to grow by 40% by the next few years.
