Support For Type 1
Studies show that vitamin D levels are low in those with autoimmune diseases – Type 1 diabetes, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and others – and vitamin D supplements have helped improve these conditions. An important role of D is its ability to decrease the number and function of T-cells, which can contribute to autoimmune diseases when they attack the body’s healthy tissues as though they were foreign invaders.
Studies confirm that vitamin D supplementation is associated with a reduced risk of Type 1 diabetes. Researchers also find that adequate vitamin D supplementation in infants may help reduce the incidence of this form of diabetes.
