Vitamin D status and Insulin Sensitivity

Blood levels of vitamin D appear to be intimitely tied to insulin sensitivity. Higher blood levels of vitamin D were associated with less abdominal fat and improved insulin sensitivity.

With much of the population in North America at least borderline deficient in vitamin D, this may be a significant discovery. Optimum vitamin D status probably can only be reached by supplementation, since even citizens of Hawaii are usually deficient in vitamin D.
