We know from articles such as this
Diabetes: Incidence of childhood type 1 diabetes: a worrying trend that there is an increase in incidence of Type One.
In an earlier blog Vitamin D Diabetes prevention I link to Frank Garland explaining the science showing the Type I incidence could largely be prevented if the vitamin D status of pregnant and nursing mothers and their offspring was brought up to the level that allows human breast milk to flow replete with vitamin D3.
But it isn't just the evidence in that video.
Since then The geospatial relation between UV solar radiation and type 1 diabetes in Newfoundland.
has shown that in those areas of Newfoundland where they get the least UVB reaching the ground
we find the greatest incidence of Type One Diabetes.
However the only way the general public will come to hear about the relation between Increased incidence of Type One Diabetes in Children with lowest levels of vitamin D is if the online forums dedicated to Diabetes information are prepared to carry it.
Diabetes Daily have once again banned me for mentioning that Vitamin D is associated with all forms of Diabetes. In this case the trigger was the research
Low serum adiponectin predicts 10-year risk of type 2 diabetes and HbA1c independently of obesity, lipids, and inflammation: Whitehall II study.
Nephropal has a blog on the topic of adiponectins that shows What raises adiponectin levels?
resveratrol - wine, mulberry, cacao
and if we connect that with the fact that the risk of incident diabetes decreased by 11% for 1 microg/ml higher adiponectin levels, it should be obvious that anyone interested in reducing Diabetes Incidence would want to know how to raise vitamin D status safely, how to be sure you have a safe level of 25(OH)D, and where to obtain vitamin D and testing from as cheaply as possible.
But that kind of information is not welcome on a site that is dedicated to maintaining diabetes incidence and simply isn't interested in prevention at all. I just don't understand why they are so unwilling to allow people with diabetes to have access to this information.
