Clinical Trials Daily

2020 JAN 10 (NewsRx) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Clinical Trials Daily -- Investigators publish new report on Nutritional and Metabolic Diseases and Conditions - Vitamin D Deficiency. According to news reporting originating in Sanandaj, Iran, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, “The present study aimed to investigate the anti-inflammatory effects of vitamin D and resistance training in men with type 2 diabetes mellitus and vitamin D deficiency. This study was a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blinded clinical trial.: IRCT20190204042621N1.”

Financial support for this research came from Sanandaj Branch, Islamic Azad University.

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from Islamic Azad University, “Forty-eight patients with type 2 diabetes aged 40-65 (from a total of 52 volunteers in Ardabil diabetes clinic) were randomly assigned to either the vitamin D supplementation with resistance training group (VD + RT:=12), the resistance training group (RT:=12), the vitamin D supplementation group (VD:=12), or the control group (CON:=12). The subjects in VD group took vitamin D supplements at 50000 IU per 2 weeks for 3 months; the subjects in RT group exercised 3 times per week for 12 weeks; and the subjects in VD + RT group participated in both treatments. Subjects in CON group were asked to maintain normal daily life pattern for the duration of the study. Serum Interleukin-6 (IL-6), Tumor Necrosis Factor-alpha (TNF-a) and C-reactive protein (CRP) levels were determined at pre and post-test and the data were compared among the four groups and between two tests (4 ? 2) using two-way ANOVA with repeated measures. IL-6 decreased significantly (=0.001) in all groups (VD + RT=% -71.73, RT=% -65.85, VD=% -61.70). TNF-a decreased significantly (=0.001) in VD + RT (% -44.90) and RT (% -40) groups. CRP showed no significant change in any group (>0.05). Results demonstrated that vitamin D supplementation in addition to resistance training had positive effects on some inflammatory markers in T2D and vitamin D deficient men.”

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: “Vitamin D supplementation was especially effective when it was complemented with exercise training.”
