Calcium, Vitamin D May Lower Diabetes Risk


A new study has shown that women who had higher intakes of vitamin D and calcium seemed to have a lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes. The research was collected from data from the Nurses’ Health Study, which has an enrollment of 83,779 women.

The women in the study who had a high intake of vitamin D from supplements had a 13 percent lower risk of diabetes. The women who had the highest intake of calcium had a 21 percent lower risk of developing diabetes than the women with the lowest calcium intakes.
