Abstract

Type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM), insulin resistance, and hypovitaminosis D are common among individuals living with HIV. Low vitamin D has been associated with insulin resistance and DM in the general population and more recently in the HIV-infected population. Our objective was to examine whether use of vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) supplementation could prevent the development of DM among patients with HIV infection.
