Vitamin D Concentrations and Their Effect on Glucose Metabolism in Pediatrics
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Prevention
To determine changes in insulin sensitivity induced by vitamin D supplementation in obese children with insulin resistance.
To our knowledge, there are no prospective randomized clinical trials on examining the effects of vitamin D treatment on insulin resistance and bone metabolism in vitamin D deficient, insulin resistant, obese children. We would like to determine if giving Vitamin D supplementation to obese children will help reduce their insulin resistance. We plan to measure Vitamin D levels and HOMA-IR at baseline and compare this to levels post-supplementation. Our timeframe is baseline and 4 months.
