> Today's Topic: Vitamin E as an Anti-Inflammatory?
> Recent media coverage of an article in the July 11, 2000 issue of
> Circulation touted vitamin E as an anti-inflammatory in diabetics.
> Subjects received 1200 IU/day (80 times the RDA) or a placebo for
> three months and a variety of markers in the blood were measured
> [ http://circ.ahajournals.org/cgi/content/abstract/102/2/191 ].
> Seventy-five subjects were recruited who were diabetic, diabetic with
> vascular disease, or age- and sex-matched healthy controls.
> Vitamin E treatment reduced the oxidation of LDL (bad cholesterol) in
> all three groups.  White blood cells from diabetics showed greater
> abnormalities than those from healthy controls, and vitamin E
> improved most of the measured factors.
> HERE'S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:  This is the first
> demonstration that vitamin E may act as an anti-inflammatory.  It
> also acts as an anti-oxidant and anti-coagulant.  An important point
> in this study is that the diabetics with or without vascular disease
> were not distinguishable by any of the markers of inflammation
> studies here.  So we won't know if vitamin E will really help
> decrease the development of vascular disease in diabetics without
> much larger, longer term studies.
