Study Finds Evidence That Vitamin D Reduces Depression Among Women With Diabetes

June 25, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
A small U.S. pilot study has found evidence that vitamin D supplementation lowered blood pressure, improved mood and even led to weight loss among women with type 2 diabetes who were also depressed. According to the researchers, women with type 2 diabetes have worse health than men, probably because of depression, which affects more than 25 percent of women with diabetes. Depression makes it tougher for people to manage diabetes by eating right, exercising, taking medications, etc. The researchers have just received funding for a larger clinical study to see if vitamin D really does have an impact on depression.
