25(OH) D levels were inversely correlated with fasting plasma glucose levels.
Lower 25(OH) D levels were also associated with lower serum high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL) concentrations.
Children who were vitamin D insufficient (25[OH] D ≤30 ng/mL) had higher fasting plasma glucose and lower HDL levels than children who were vitamin D sufficient (25[OH] D >30 ng/mL).
Monounsaturated fats found in vegetable oils, nuts and avocados increase "good" HDL cholesterol levels by 12% http://goo.gl/GBQa5
