Answer

A study by Simpson et al found that neither vitamin D intake nor 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels throughout childhood were associated with islet autoimmunity or progression to type 1 DM. [37] This study was based in Denver, Colorado, and has been following children at increased risk of diabetes since 1993.
