Washington: Researchers have found that vitamin D supplements can help obese children and adolescents control their blood-sugar levels, which may help them stay clear off the disease.Being obese puts individuals at greater risk for developing Type 2 diabetes."By increasing vitamin D intake alone, we got a response that was nearly as powerful as what we have seen using a prescription drug," Catherine Peterson, an associate professor of nutrition and exercise physiology at MU, said. "We saw a decrease in insulin levels, which means better glucose control, despite no changes in body weight, dietary intake or physical activity," he said.Peterson and her colleagues studied 35 pre-diabetic obese children and adolescents who were undergoing treatment in the MU Adolescent Diabetic Obesity Program.
