Project Description

Results:
Calcium concentration (OR per 1 SD unit increase, 1.26) and calcium-phosphate product (OR 1.29) were associated with incident diabetes after adjustment for demographic variables, family history of diabetes and 2 h glucose The relationship between phosphate concentration and progression to diabetes was close to statistical significance (OR 1.21) Calcium concentration (OR 1.37) and calcium-phosphate product (OR 1.39) remained associated with incident diabetes after additional adjustment for: – Body Mass Index – Plasma glucose – Insulin sensitivity index – Acute Insulin response – C-reactive protein – Estimated Glomerular filtration rate – Diuretic drugs and total calcium intake
Conclusion:
Elevated serum calcium and calcium-phosphate product are associated with increased risk of developing T2D independently of measured glucose, Insulin secretion and Insulin resistance.

Explanation:
Excess of calcium uptake generally (can be by milk and its products) causes increased risk of diabetes type 2
