To Critically Assess the effect of oral vitamin D supplements on wound healing in a patient with diabetic foot ulcer and its impact on lipid metabolism. This is a single-Centre prospective randomised, control-controlled study was conducted in Department of Surgery Datta Meghe Medical College, Hingna, Nagpur, in collaboration with Datta Meghe Institute of Medical Sciences (DMIMS) Deemed to be University from June 2019 TO March 2020. A total of sixty patients were included in this study. A randomised grouping was done, group A vitamin d supplements and group B as an x-control group. In the group, A vitamin D levels were significantly increased after 12 weeks of intervention as compared to baseline while in group B, no change was seen after the intervention. There was a significant change in HbA1c level after intervention as group A vs group B. similar results were seen in total cholesterol levels after intervention in group A, and group B. Wound surface area was (29.83±15.02 vs 21.76±11.30, p=0.02) in group A and (25.06±14.02 vs 21.3±13.19, p=0.28) in group B respectively. The level of high-density lipoprotein in the group was significantly lower in level when compared to group A after 12 weeks of intervention. No significant changes were seen in the triglycerides level in group A and group B., A comparison of group A vs group B after 12 weeks of intervention, was done. It revealed that Vitamin D Glycosylated total haemoglobin cholesterol, High-density lipoprotein and Wound surface area, significantly improved. At the same time, there was no change seen in triglycerides levels in both the group.After intervention with vitamin D supplements for 12 weeks among patients with diabetic foot ulcer had a good result and beneficial effect on glucose metabolism, vitamin D levels, lipid profile and wound healing
