Type 1 Diabetes association with poor Vitamin D Receptor: 39 studies – April 2017

Inherited Variation in Vitamin D Genes and Type 1 Diabetes Predisposition

Genes 2017, 8(4), 125; doi:10.3390/genes8040125 (registering DOI)

  • Vitamin D tests do not detect poor Vitamin D Receptor and 4 other classes of vitamin D genes.
  • Thus, you can have a good blood level of vitamin D but get T1 Diabetes and many other health problems because genes limit the amount of vitamin D getting to the cells
  • Health problems that run in families are often associated with low vitamin D - and genes decreasing Vitamin D getting to cells

Pages listed in BOTH of the categories Diabetes and Vitamin D Receptor

Vitamin D Receptor category has the following

143 items in Vitamin D Receptor category

Vitamin D tests cannot detect Vitamin D Receptor (VDR) problems
A poor VDR restricts Vitamin D from getting in the cells
A poor VDR increases the risk of 29+ health problems  click here for details

VDR at-home test $29 - results not easily understood in 2016
There are hints that you may have inherited a poor VDR
You can compensate for poor VDR by increasing one or more of the following:

1) Vitamin D supplement
  Sun, Ultraviolet -B
Vitamin D in the blood
and thus to the cells
2) MagnesiumVitamin D in the blood
 AND to the cells
3) Omega-3 Vitamin D to the cells
4) Resveratrol Vitamin D to the cells
5) Intense exercise Vitamin D Receptor
6) Get prescription for VDR activator
   paricalcitol, maxacalcitol?
Vitamin D Receptor
7) Quercetin (flavonoid) Vitamin D Receptor

See chart at the bottom of VDR page for Magnesium, Omega-3 and Resveratrol

The etiology and pathophysiology of type 1 diabetes remain largely elusive with no established concepts for a causal therapy. Efforts to clarify genetic susceptibility and screening for environmental factors have identified the vitamin D system as a contributory pathway that is potentially correctable. This review aims at compiling all genetic studies addressing the vitamin D system in type 1 diabetes. Herein, association studies with case control cohorts are presented as well as family investigations with transmission tests, meta-analyses and intervention trials. Additionally, rare examples of inborn errors of vitamin D metabolism manifesting with type 1 diabetes and their immune status are discussed.
We find a majority of association studies confirming a predisposing role for vitamin D receptor (VDR) polymorphisms and those of the vitamin D metabolism, particularly the CYP27B1 gene encoding the main enzyme for vitamin D activation. Associations, however, are tenuous in relation to the ethnic background of the studied populations. Intervention trials identify the specific requirements of adequate vitamin D doses to achieve vitamin D sufficiency. Preliminary evidence suggests that doses may need to be individualized in order to achieve target effects due to pharmacogenomic variation.
