Putative scheme of effect of vitamin D on insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. Vitamin D deficiency influences the pathogenesis of insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes by direct effect such as decreased binding to vitamin D receptor (VDR), and indirect effect such as aberrant calcium flux. Reductive serum 25(OH)D concentration was accompanied with decreased LPL and increased TG in our study, which might be associated with insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes.
