BackgroundLow serum vitamin D concentrations have been associated with autoimmune thyroiditis. Obesity is characterized by lower vitamin D levels and higher risk to develop autoimmune diseases. The aim of the study was to investigate the possible relation of serum vitamin D concentrations to visceral fat thickness (VFT), insulin resistance (IR), inflammation (serum monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 – MCP-1) and thyroid parameters in obese patients....

Effect of cholecalciferol treatment on insulin sensitivity in patients with chronic autoimmune thyroiditis

Pankiv Volodymyr , Yuzvenko Tetiana

Background: Effects of vitamin D on immune cells might affect diabetes mellitus (DM) development since inflammatory factors have been linked to insulin resistance (IR). The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of cholesterol treatment on insulin sensitivity metabolic markers in patients with chronic autoimmune thyroiditis.Materials and methods: In this double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial, which was conducted from May to Septembe...
