Several studies linked vitamin D deficiency with coronary artery disease (CAD). The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between the concentrations of 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25OHD) and the presence of early atherosclerosis in asymptomatic Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) patients with no previous history of ischemic heart disease.
