Background: Vitamin D deficiency is considered as a public health problem throughout the world. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of vitamin D on weight loss, high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs_CRP), and insulin resistance in obese and overweight women.Methods: This double blind clinical trial was done on 53 overweight and obese women who divided into two groups. The intervention group received vitamin D supplements with doze of 50000 IU per week for 6 weeks and another received placebo. The anthropometric factors and biochemical markers were measured before and after intervention. Independent samples t and paired samples t test were used to compare the mean between and within groups, respectively.Findings: Serum vitamin D increased significantly compared to control group (P < 0.001); but other factors including anthropometric factors, hs_CRP, fasting blood sugar (FBS), and insulin resistance (IR) did not change significantly (P > 0.050 for all).Conclusion: The evidence of this study suggests that supplementation of vitamin D in obese and overweight women did not confirm the effect of vitamin D supplementation on anthropometrics, body mass index (BMI), hs_CRP, and insulin resistance.
