Vitamin D Decreases Pain in Type 2, Study Shows Diane Fennell Vitamin D lessens pain in women who have Type 2 diabetes and depression, according to new research presented at a recent conference at Loyola University’s Health Sciences Campus. Up to 60% of people with diabetes deal with chronic pain, according to surveys , and people with diabetes are twice as likely to have depression as those without diabetes. Two types of vitamin D are important in humans : vitamin D2, which is made by plants, and vitamin D3, which is made by human skin when it is exposed to the sun. Foods may be fortified with either type of vitamin D. To determine how vitamin D2 supplementation affects both depression and pain in Type 2 diabetes, Loyola researchers evaluated the effectiveness six months of weekly supplementation with a very high dose of vitamin D2 in women with Type 2 diabetes.
