The fat soluble vitamin D, anti Thyroperoxidase (anti TPO) enzyme, an enzyme involved in thyroid hormone synthesis has a role in uncontrolled type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D). Vitamin D has diverse functions in human body and it carries out its function via vitamin D receptors (VDR). This VDRs are present in most types of immune cells. The immuno modulator property of vitamin D is due to its effects on T and B lymphocytes. Thus, vitamins D modifies cell mediated immune responses and regulate inflammatory T cell activity. In T2D, there is insulin resistance (high titers of insulin antibodies), decreased vitamin D activity and increased anti TPO levels. This study concludes a probable relation between immune related activity, signaling molecules in T2D which increases the progression of this condition to autoimmune thyroid disease.
