According to a study by the Harvard School of Public Health, vitamin D deficiency, which is a common phenomenon among Indians, increases a person’s risk of getting type 1 diabetes. The study also revealed that having adequate levels of vitamin D during one’s childhood reduced the risk of adult-onset diabetes by about 50 percent.
