BACKGROUND Low plasma 25-hydroxy-vitamin D (25OHD) is associated with obesity. Vitamin D (VD) may be implicated in obesity and its complications such as insulin resistance, hypertension, and low-grade inflammation. We investigated the effects of VD supplementation on fat distribution and on obesity complications in obese adults with low plasma levels of 25OHD. METHODS In a double-blind design 52 subjects aged 18 to 50years with BMI>30kg/m(2) and plasma 25OHD <50nmol/l were randomized to… CONTINUE READING
