LATEST RESEARCH UPDATE: A randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind trial evaluated the effects of vitamin D supplementation on the metabolic profiles of insulin-resistant women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Women were randomized into one of three groups: high-dose vitamin D (4,000 IU) + metformin (1500 mg), low-dose vitamin D (1,000 IU) + metformin (1500 mg), or vitamin D placebo + metformin (1500 mg) for 12 weeks. The study found that 4,000 IU group (compared to the 1000 IU and placebo groups) had significant improvement in fasting plasma glucose, serum insulin, HOMA-IR, total testosterone, free androgen index, hirsutism, and high-sensitivity C-reactive protein in women with PCOS and insulin resistance.
