BACKGROUND Findings of observational studies that investigated the relationship between vitamin D deficiency and abnormal glucose homeostasis were contradictory. This meta-analysis of epidemiologic studies evaluated the association of vitamin D status and risk of type-2 diabetes (T2D) and prediabetes in adults. METHODS A systematic search was conducted on all published articles in five electronic databases (including MEDLINE/PubMed, EMBASE, Institute for Scientific Information, Scopus and… 
Association of Serum 25(OH)D with Metabolic Syndrome in Chinese Women of Childbearing Age
TLDR
Significant associations between insufficient serum 25(OH)D and MetS’s components, including elevated WC, TG, and reduced HDL-C, were observed, however, MetS, hypertension, and hyperglycemia were not found independently associated with 25( OH)D levels.
Mechanisms Involved in the Relationship between Vitamin D and Insulin Resistance: Impact on Clinical Practice
TLDR
Although there is a biological plausibility linking the status of vitamin D and insulin resistance supported by basic and clinical research findings, well-designed randomized clinical trials as well as basic research are necessary to know the molecular pathways involved in this association.
Old and Novel Therapeutic Approaches in the Management of Hyperglycemia, an Important Risk Factor for Atherosclerosis
TLDR
The aim of this review is to gather the latest advancements regarding the use of antidiabetic and antiplatelet drugs coupled with vitamin D supplementation to control glucose levels, therefore reducing the risk of coronary artery disease (CAD).
Nutraceuticals use and type 2 diabetes mellitus.
The Role of Exercise-Induced Molecular Processes and Vitamin D in Improving Cardiorespiratory Fitness and Cardiac Rehabilitation in Patients With Heart Failure
TLDR
The aim of this review is to gather together the molecular processes triggered by the exercise and available therapies in HF settings that could ameliorate heart performance, with a special focus on strategies such as exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation.
