In their article, Kumar et al.[1] had evaluated the correlation between serum vitamin D levels and markers of glycaemic control in Indian patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). They found that vitamin D deficiency was observed in 52.5% of the studied cohort and vitamin D levels did not correlate with insulin resistance or glycaemic control markers.[1] They suggested a potential for vitamin D supplementation in T2DM patients.[1] It is felt that the authors'[1] suggestion must be considered cautiously. It is explicit that even in a tropical country like India, where there is plentiful sunshine, vitamin D deficiency forms an important health issue among different age groups. The published data revealed that the prevalence of vitamin D deficiency ranged from 30% to 91.2% among adults in India.[2],[3] Accordingly, conducting a case-control studies recruiting cases group with T2DM and age- and gender-matched control subjects are warranted to further clearly understand the role of vitamin D deficiency in T2DM patients.
