Four studies concluded that vitamin D had improved insulin sensitivity and glycaemia status among T2DM patients while eleven studies reported no improvements.
The triglyceride and fasting glycaemia concentrations was conducted by the enzymatic method, and the HDL-c concentration was analyzed by an indirect colorimetric test.
Caption: Figure 1: The stacked bar of frequency distribution (%) of the bone mineral density of the whole skeleton and of the lumbar spine bone mineral density in T1DM patients with well- or poorly controlled glycaemia. TBBMD--total body bone mineral density; S24BMD--bone mineral density, lumbar spine L2-L4.
The cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) had 38 nucleated cells/[mm.sup.3], 175mg/dL proteins and 37mg/dL glucose (glycaemia 82 mg/dL).

Seven days after STZ administration, glycaemia was measured, and only rats that had glycaemia higher than 250mg/dL were assigned to the diabetic groups.
Analyses included platelet count (PC), platelet indices (MPV, PCT, and PDW), liver function tests, aspartate aminotransferase (AST), alanine aminotransferase (ALT), gammaglutamyl transferase (GGT), alkaline phosphatase (ALP), lipid profile including triglycerides, C-reactive protein (CRP), and fasting blood glycaemia and insulin levels, by using Ilab 650 (Instrumentation Laboratory, Milano, Italy).
