Purpose:

This purpose of this project is to evaluate the effectiveness of vitamin D supplementation over 12 months in vitamin D deficient African American adults with type 2 diabetes.


Study summary:

Diabetic kidney disease is increasing in prevalence and is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Health disparities exist in the progression of diabetic kidney disease, with minorities being more affected even when adjusting for treatment, glycemic and hypertensive control, and medical coverage. Secondary prevention of the progression of diabetic kidney disease is hindered by a lack of easily modifiable risk factors. Based on animal and observational human studies, vitamin D deficiency is potentially a novel, modifiable risk factor that may interrupt or delay the progression of diabetic kidney disease through direct effects as well as by helping to ameliorate kidney disease risk factors, such as hyperglycemia, hypertension and inflammation. In addition, based on minorities having a higher prevalence of vitamin D deficiency, it may also potentially impact the differential progression of diabetic kidney disease in minorities. However, clinical trials evaluating the impact of vitamin D supplementation on diabetic kidney disease are lacking. Thus, this pilot study funded as an R03 through the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) has the following specific aims: (1): To evaluate the impact of vitamin D supplementation (vitamin D3 at 400 IU/d versus 4000 IU/d) on the proportion of individuals with progression of albuminuria over 12 months in a sample of African American participants with vitamin D deficiency in a randomized controlled trial. (2): To identify whether kidney disease risk factors such as blood pressure and glycemic control mediate the impact of vitamin D supplementation on the progression of albuminuria over 12 months in a sample of African American participants with vitamin D deficiency in a randomized controlled trial.
