Did you know the connection between Vit D and weight loss? If you take Dr. Sanjay Kumar Bhadada, Professor of Endocrinology at the Department of Endocrinology, PGIMER, Chandigarh, the two are closely related. In a webinar by the Chandigarh Alumni Association of Panjab University on the topic of "Vitamin and Weight Management Strategy in Covid 19", Dr. Bhadada made his point of view clear through a humorous presentation. He said, “Add humor to avoid stress and anxiety, and it is recommended to avoid rush, worry and curry as these ingredients are very harmful to health. He explained the relationship between vitamin D production and the metabolism of a human body. He talked about topics such as what influences Vit D synthesis in the skin, how much sun exposure is enough, how Vit D deficiency can be overcome, ideal body weight, weight reduction, healthy eating, intermittent fasting, exercise, etc.
“Humor to avoid stress and anxiety, recommended to avoid rush, worry and curry as this affects health to a significant extent. ”

Dr. Bhadada has extensive experience in the medical field. He is the ex-secretary and current executive director of the Indian Society for Bone and Mineral Research (ISBMR), ex-secretary and elected chairman of the Punjab chapter of the Research Society for the Study of Diabetes in India, and founder of ADITI, a social support group for young diabetics who provide them with medical, social, financial and professional help.
The webinar generated a great deal of interest from attendees in the effects of Vit D on diabetes and obesity.
Vitamin D deficiency is becoming a common and global health problem, particularly in India. Despite considerable exposure to sunlight, the deficiency is high in both the urban and rural populations. Studies have also shown that Vit D deficiency occurs in controlling / reversing pre-diabetes to diabetes in obese patients. Several studies around the world suggest a link between vitamin D deficiency, insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome and diabetes.
