Sunshine Protects Fetus From Developing Diabetes

It has been long known that getting adequate sunshine is good for the development of the human body. A news study conducted in the University of Leuven, // Belgium reconfirmed this idea. The study concluded that getting plenty of sunshine could actually help protect an unborn baby from diabetes and thyroid problems. But it cautions that too much of it could actually turn out to be harmful.

The study by Dr Chantal Mathieu, found that low levels of vitamin D could be linked to the development of autoimmune disorders Hence the vitamin D that the body gets from sunlight could actually help to cut the risk of the unborn child from developing them.

As people often lack sufficient vitamin D, experts advise expectant mothers to ensure regular but sensible sun exposure or the right diet.

The vitamin is also found in foods such as salmon, tuna and other oily fish, Vitamin D has also been added to several milk brands in the market. It is also available in supplements.

'Pregnant mothers are particularly liable to develop vitamin D deficiency, and so they are at increased risk of developing autoimmune diseases,' Mathieu said.

She said there are two key ways for women to ensure they and their babies are getting enough vitamin D. 'You can make sure that you get an adequate amount of sunshine - bearing in mind that this has to be done sensibly, because too much sunshine can cause problems such as skin cancer... Or it might be easier simply to take vitamin supplements during pregnancy.'

Mathieu disclosed the finding of the study at the British Endocrine Societies meeting held recently in Birmingham.
