Vitamin K Linked to Lower Diabetes Risk

People who get vitamin K from food may have a lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

Among 38,000 adults followed for a decade, those who got the most vitamin K in their diets were about 20 percent less likely to be diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.

According to Reuters:

“It's estimated that more than 23 million, or nearly 11 percent, of U.S. adults have type 2 diabetes ... The extent to which specific nutrients in the diet might affect diabetes risk remains unclear.”

Both vitamins K1 and K2 were related to a lower diabetes risk, but the relationship was stronger with vitamin K2, which people get mainly from meat, cheese and eggs.
