Vitamin D undoubtedly plays a key role in the prevention and control of diabetic problems. Deficiencies of this nutrient are linked to a greater risk of developing the condition, for example, and also to eyesight threatening diabetic retinopathy. Conversely, getting enough vitamin D when young is associated with lower risk of diabetes-related autoimmunity.

Other nutrients are also important, of course. Vitamin C lowers blood pressure and blood sugar levels, while vitamin K is beneficial to insulin sensitivity and glucose metabolism. Studies show that vitamin B12, zinc and manganese may reduce the risk of developing diabetes, and that magnesium may relieve its symptoms. Vitamin A may help treat early vision loss in the condition.
