The effect of administration of vitamin D is tested on the long-term control of blood sugar (as measured by HbA1-c levels in blood) and mean blood pressure (as measured by 24 hour blood pressure profiles)in patients with stable type 2 diabetes mellitus

Condition Intervention Phase
Diabetes Mellitus Type 2
Drug: 25(OH) vitamin D
Drug: 0.9 % NaCl
Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Effect of Administration of 25(OH) Vitamin on Mean 24 Hour Blood Pressure and HBA1c Levels in Patients With Stable Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

Study Start Date: January 2009
Study Completion Date: June 2010
Primary Completion Date: June 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: vitamin D
Intervention: Intramuscular injection of 300 000 U of 25(OH)vitamin D
Drug: 25(OH) vitamin D
300 000 U intramuscularly, one dosage, in subjects with 25 (OH) vit D levels below 80 nmol/L, another dosage of 150 000 U after 3 months if 25(OH)vit D levels continue to be below 80 nmol/L.
Placebo Comparator: placebo
administration of 0.9 % NaCl as a placebo
Drug: 0.9 % NaCl
1 ml of 0.9 % of NaCl at the beginning and 0.5 ml of 0.9 % NaCl after three months


Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion criteria

  • Men and women, ages ≥18 years
  • Official diagnostic criteria for type 2 diabetes fulfilled in patients on any type of oral or parenteral glucose-lowering treatment
  • Independent living at home
  • On stable regimen of BP meds (if any) with BP well controlled and/or K supplement (if any) for 2 months and which is deemed unlikely to change during the study
  • Stable glucose control for 2 months by any approved method including insulin

Exclusion criteria

  • Patients with type 1 diabetes (or insulin-requiring diabetes of unclear type)
  • Patients on hemodialysis, with hyperparathyroidism or active cancer disease
  • Patients with known metabolic bone disease
  • Laboratory evidence of kidney (eGFR < 60 ml/min) or liver disease
  • Dietary calcium intake exceeding 1500mg/d (as estimated by dietary history)
  • 25(OH) vitamin D levels at baseline > 70 nmol/L
  • Calciuria (> 8 mmol/24 hours as measured by 24 hour urine collections)
  • Hypo- and hypercalcemias and hypo- and hyperphosphatemias of any cause
  • Medications that affect vitamin D metabolism (e.g. antiepileptic drugs, calcimimetics, 1-34 PTH (Forsteo) vitamin D therapy over and above 400U daily 6 months prior to enrollment and during the study)
  • Foreseeable need for adaptation of either glucose- or blood pressure lowering during the next 6 months as decided by the family physician or the treating diabetologist - see above
  • History of binge eating or wt gain or loss exceeding 6 kg in past 18 months
  • Patients on any type of inhibitors of plasma coagulation (i.e. coumarine, heparins)
