Default Type 1 Diabetes Progression Halted with Vitamin D, Omega-3

Type 1 Diabetes Progression Halted with Vitamin D, Omega-3

Last July, GrassrootsHealth launched a new project, the D*action Type 1 Diabetes Prevention project, to help identify potential changes in type 1 diabetes (T1D) diagnosis and autoantibody status that may result from actions taken (such as increasing the amount of sensible sun exposure, fatty fish in the diet, and/or supplements) in response to vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acid testing and education. The presence of islet cell autoantibodies (such as IAA, GADA, IA-2A, ZnT8, and ICA) indicates an autoimmune response against the cells of the pancreas, and is strongly associated with development of T1D. Evidence suggests a role of vitamin D and omega-3 in possibly reversing or stopping progression from developing autoantibodies to a T1D diagnosis. While there have been several published trials and case studies on this topic, such as the one below, the D*action field trial may help demonstrate the effect even further.

Very interesting website focused on vitamin D and Omega 3 impacts on health. We know that many today are vitamin D insufficient and deficient. Glad to see the positive impacts to inflammation and other health issues are being studied in detail. Thanks, Demi.

I take both. Recently started on omega 3 fish oil a few months ago per my chiropractor. He said it would help with my bones since I have osteoporosis. I don't know how it helps with bones but I trust his judgement.

A way to increase the effects of omega 3 is to decrease omega 6 and 9 to "normal" levels.

I have a close friend living the T1D life, so very interesting to here the benefits of vit D and onega 3's.
