Is There a Connection Between Vitamin D Deficiencies and Diabetes?

Age and medication can also affect vitamin D levels.

Age decreases the ability of your body to synthesize vitamin D from sun exposure. Studies show that those over the age of 70 have a 25% reduced level of absorbing vitamin D from the sun.

Different medications including antifungal medications, glucocorticoids, anticonvulsants, and medications used to treat AIDS/HIV cause problems in the absorption of vitamin D.
