Vitamin E deficiency in erythrocytes causes decreased cell survival, hypercoagulability, and increased adhesiveness to the endothelium. Similar abnormalities are found in erythrocytes of the diabetic population. This study examines the effect of diabetes on vitamin E and lipofuscin products (aging pigments) in erythrocytes of streptozocin-induced diabetic rats. Controls were injected with buffer alone, and a subgroup consisting of insulin-treated diabetic rats were injected daily with insulin… CONTINUE READING
