A number of health benefits are attributed to adequate levels of vitamin D in our bodies, including reduced risk of certain cancers. Now researchers at the University of California San Diego and Seoul National University in South Korea suggest levels of vitamin D above twenty-five nanograms per milliliter--that recommended in 2010--may reduce risk of developing diabetes. This study, published in the journal PLOS One, found patients with vitamin D levels above thirty had one-third less risk of developing diabetes compared to those falling below the recommended amount. Higher levels of vitamin D are generally considered safe, but this study is worth discussing with your own health care provider.
