Our objective was to study the cross-sectional associations between concentrations of a- and g-tocopherol and concentrations of glucose, glycosylated haemoglobin, insulin and C-peptide among US adults. We used data for 1289 participants without self-reported diabetes who were aged $ 20 years in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 1999– 2000. a-Tocopherol concentration was inversely associated with glucose concentration (b per mmol/l ¼ 20·01064, SE 0·00356, P¼0·004) after… CONTINUE READING
