Based on increasing evidence from animal and human studies, vitamin D deficiency is now regarded as a potential risk factor for type 2 diabetes (T2D). Vitamin D is involved in the pathogenesis of pancreatic β-cell dysfunction, insulin resistance and systemic inflammation, conditions that contribute to the development of T2D. Vitamin D can affect the progress of this disease directly through the activation of its own receptor and indirectly via the regulation of calcium (Ca) homeostasis. Observational studies have revealed an inverse association between vitamin D deficiency and incident T2D. More double-blind randomized control studies that investigate the effects of vitamin D supplementation on insulin sensitivity, insulin secretion and the occurrence of T2D are needed. © 2013 Ruijin Hospital, Shanghai Jiaotong University School of Medicine and Wiley Publishing Asia Pty Ltd.
