Asian Indian Diabetic Heart Study/SIKH Diabetes Study

Study Name Asian Indian Diabetic Heart Study/SIKH Diabetes Study
Study Acronym AIDHS/SDS
Funding Agency NIDDK NIH HHS,NIDDK NIH HHS
Primary Research Focus Vitamin D deficiency is implicated in multiple disease conditions and accumulating evidence supports that the variation in serum vitamin D (25(OH)D) levels, including deficiency, is under strong genetic control. However, the underlying genetic mechanism associated with vitamin 25(OH)D concentrations is poorly understood. We earlier reported a very high prevalence of vitamin D deficiency associated with an increased risk for type 2 diabetes and obesity in a Punjabi Sikh diabetic cohort as part of the Asian Indian diabetic heart study (AIDHS). Here we have performed the first genome-wide association study (GWAS) of serum 25(OH)D on 3538 individuals from this Punjabi Sikh population.
