50 patients and 30 healthy controls in different gender are roughly selected in wide range of age between (18-80 years), taken from different private laboratories in Baghdad through the period (2021-2022). They were separated into two groups (male 39– female 11(patients)) (male 17- female 13) control and applied a vitamin D test and Ca level. This study is designed to investigate the possible association between Ca and Vit D3 levels and diabetes type one patient. A highly significant difference between the patient and healthy control in low Ca levels (p-value 0.0084 **) A highly significant difference between the patient and healthy control in normal Ca levels (p- value 0.0097 **) while no significant difference when the Ca level is high (p-value 0.894 NS). No significant difference between the patient and healthy control in Vit D3 deficiency group (p-value 0.083 NS) while there is a significant difference between the patient and healthy control in Vit D3 insufficient group (p- value 0.0392 *) while there is no significant difference in Suboptimal vit D3 level group (p-value 00.602 NS). Also there is no significant difference in optimal vit D3 level group (p-value 0.907 NS). The conclusion of this study suggests that Men may be more likely than women to develop type 1 diabetes within the area from which the samples were collected depending on the results. Smoking may also be an influential factor, regardless of gender. But also non-smoking people have the condition. Blood pressure was not a significant factor in this study. People with diabetes tend to have lower levels of calcium in their bodies than normal people. They also have insufficient levels of vitamin D compared to normal people.
