Higher levels of belly fat are associated with lower vitamin D levels in obese individuals, according to data presented in Barcelona at the European Society of Endocrinology annual meeting, ECE 2018.

The study reports that vitamin D levels are lower in individuals with higher levels of belly fat, and suggests that individuals, particularly the overweight with larger waistlines should have their vitamin D levels checked, to avoid any potentially health

In this study Rachida Rafiq and colleagues from the examined how the amount of total body fat and abdominal fat measured in participants.

The study from VU University Medical Centre and Leiden University Medical Centre in the Netherlands found that the amounts of both total and abdominal fat were associated with lower vitamin D levels in women, although abdominal fat had a greater impact. However, in men abdominal fat and liver fat, was associated with lower vitamin D levels.

In all cases the greater the amount of belly fat, the lower the levels of detected

This strong association may point to a possible role for vitamin D in abdominal fat storage and function.
