Results: In the current study, 248 type 2 diabetic patients had been screened for vitamin D deficiency. The great majority of diabetic patients had suboptimal level of vitamin D (98.4%). Almost three-quarters of female diabetic patients (73.6%) compared to less than half of male diabetic patients (46.9%) had vitamin D deficiency while approximately half of male patients (50.8% and one quarter of female patients (25.6%) had vitamin D insufficiency. This difference between them was statistically significant (chi-sq.=18.5, P<0.001).

Conclusions: The results of our study show that the great majority of type 2 diabetic patients having suboptimal vitamin D level. The majority of female diabetic patients (73.6%) while 46.9% of male diabetic patients were vitamin D deficient.
