Objective: This study aimed to compare vitamin D deficiency between healthy and Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) patients. Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted from July 2021 to June 2022 in the Department of Physiology, Rangpur Medical College, Rangpur. For this study, a total number of 100 subjects were selected among them 50 non-diabetic healthy subjects were included as control and 50 Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus patients were included as cases. The subjects of control were selected from the surrounding community of Rangpur district and subjects of cases were selected from Diabetic Association and from Outdoor of Endocrinology Department, Rangpur Medical College and Hospital, Rangpur. For statistical analysis, an independent sample t-test was performed by computer-based software SPSS-23.0 version for windows.
