Vitamin Supplementation with Gestational Diabetes

This was emailed to me and I thought it could be useful for expectant moms out there who liked to stay informed.

"Vitamin D supplementation effective in gestational diabetics

As reported in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, vitamin D3 supplementation (50,000 IU at baseline and d 21) of gestational diabetics (n=54) resulted in a significant reduction in FBG, insulin, HOMA-IR, TC, and LDL-C compared to supplementation with placebo. Vitamin D3 supplementation had no effect on inflammation or oxidative stress."
Read the article summary now:

I love helping moms and their 
families with their nutritional 
education and am always
learning myself. 
Vitamin D has been 
effective with other 
disease processes as well. 


Wishing you wellness and peace today 
and the rest of the week!
