These days, D vitamin deficiency is extremely common in obese people. D vitamin deficiency and obesity are associated with coronary disease, metabolism syndrome, type 2 diabetes mellitus, along with other diseases.
According to Body Mass Index, patients were divided into 3 groups. Serum D vitamin was compared with insulin resistance and HbA1c. Results: It had been shown that serum D vitamin levels were statistically decreased according to BMI. There was also a statistical significance increase in Hba1c level due to increased BMI. There’s also a positive correlation between body mass index and insulin resistance. Positive correlation was found between HbA1C and insulin resistance. There was no statistical significance difference between the levels of insulin resistance among the groups of BMI.
Conclusions: To conclude, D vitamin deficiency might be seen in obese people. Low serum D vitamin levels might accelerate the development of diabetes mellitus in obese people. Serum D vitamin levels should be measured in obese people and necessary treatment should be performed. This can be useful in obesity treatment and prevention of diabetes mellitus development. Keywords – Obesity, D vitamin, Insulin resistance, Diabetes mellitus – Introduction – Obesity became an essential health issue in developed and developing countries. We’ve planned this study in order to show the effect of changes in D vitamin levels on obesity and insulin resistance. Materials and Methods – Amasya University Sabuncuolu erefeddin Training and Research Hospital database was used and we worked with 170 people who were enrolled in the clinics between January 1, 2016 and December 31, 2016 and who were treated and followed by dieticians.
