Are You at Risk for Diabetes

There are 86 million Americans with pre-diabetes (1/3 of the adult population) and their chance of developing diabetes is about 10% per year. Lifestyle changes, such as healthy eating and exercising, aiming at weight loss can lower risk of diabetes. However, many people at risk still develop diabetes despite efforts at changing lifestyle.

The D2d study is underway

D2d is a large-scale clinical trial to investigate if vitamin D supplementation helps prevent or delay type 2 diabetes in adults who are at high risk for diabetes (pre-diabetes). "Past observational studies have suggested that higher levels of vitamin D may be beneficial in preventing type 2 diabetes, but until the D2d study is complete, we won’t know if taking vitamin D supplements lowers the risk of diabetes,” said Anastassios G. Pittas, M.S., M.D., the study’s principal investigator. The D2d study is funded by the National Institutes of Health and taking place in 22 cities across the United States.

D2d is a nationwide study

D2d takes place in 22 medical centers across the United States. Approximately 35% of the US population lives within the larger metropolitan areas covered by the D2d sites. In Baton Rouge, LA there is a D2d site at the Pennington Biomedical Research Center led by Dr. Hsia. The Pennington D2d team looks forward to contributing knowledge to help people with pre-diabetes.
