This study is looking at whether taking vitamin D can help improve the symptoms of patients with type 1 diabetes.
We are interested in learning more about whether vitamin D affects the body during the honeymoon period in children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes (T1D). The honeymoon period is the time following the diagnosis of T1D when the body is able to make some insulin on its own. Prolonging this phase has been shown to improve glucose control and to reduce some complications of diabetes mellitus. Patients will be randomly assigned to receive vitamin D or a placebo (an inactive substance).
What we're hoping for
We hope to learn if vitamin D can prolong the honeymoon period and possibly reduce long term complications of type 1 diabetes.
