In the U.S. Pharmacist feature for which you gave us the link, there was, not only the list of cells having VDRs, but part 2 stated that normal insulin secretion is dependent on Vitamin D. To modify your sentence--"so might not sufficient vitamin d status improve a person's [insulin] status?" I'm hoping so; that's the reason I am working on D supplementaion.
by the way i couldn't click through to that us pharmacist article from your last post on this topic. is it just me?
But she cut out red meat a long time ago - it didn't make her feel good. She eats a lot of fish (in part just because she lives in London) and she eats yogurt almost every day in her granola. She takes the b vitamins, calcium, things like that. We cut out anything that could be an immune booster in case it could make anything worse. She drinks green tea, other tea, also red wine and coffee, of course - can't lose all the fun in your life. Anyway, her diet is not bad at all, but she obviously needs something more than just a good diet at this point.
Anyway, thanks for the input. Keep it coming!!!
