Objectives: To measure Vitamin D levels in diabetic patients with and without kidney disease. Study Design: Prospective Case Control Study. Setting: Diabetic Clinic Ward 6, Nephrology Unit Ward 22 JPMC. Period: 2 year Jan 2016 to Dec 2017. Material & Methods: 102 subjects were enrolled for the study in which their anthropometry was recorded and blood samples were collected for hemoglobin A1C, fasting blood glucose, vitamin D levels, and blood Urea Nitrogen. Results: It is identified from the experiments that vitamin D deficiency links with a prior and an additional hostile inception of diabetes. In this research the levels of Vitamin D was measured in diabetic patients with and without kidney disease and then were correlated with disease severity. Conclusion: It is concluded that vitamin D deficiency in pa­tients with CKD is not accepted so far. Whereas Patients with CKD might be connected with better existence rates, when matched to patients who did not consume vitamin D.
