Epidemiologic studies link vitamin D deficiency to onset of type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM). T1DM exhibits increased inflammation, which is pronounced with microvascular complications (T1DM-MV). However, there are a paucity of data on vitamin D in T1DM-MV in relation to biomarkers of inflammation, and this formed the aim of the study. Healthy control subjects (n = 36), patients with T1DM (n = 24), and patients with T1DM-MV (n =26) were recruited. Serum vitamin D levels, monocyte toll-like… CONTINUE READING
