Diabetics may benefit from Vitamin E supplements

Researchers from the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology claim that vitamin E supplements can help diabetics who have a form of blood protein called haptoglobin. The presence of haptoglobin increases the risk of developing heart disease by up to 500%. Vitamin E can reduce the risk of heart attack by 43% and the risk of death from heart attack by 55% in at risk diabetics. Roughly 40% of diabetics have the detrimental form of haptoglobin.
