Vitamin E supplementation and cardiovascular events in high-risk patients.

Consistent consumption of vitamin E supplements may not prevent the occurrence of cardiovascular events, such as stroke, myocardial infarction, and cardiovascular-related deaths in diabetic and cardiovascular disease patients.

This study examined the association between the use of vitamin E supplements and the incidence of adverse cardiovascular events, such as myocardial infarction, stroke, and death in high-risk patients. Researchers tracked the vitamin E supplement consumption rates and estimated the stroke, myocardial infarction, and cardiovascular mortality risk of 4,761 patients suffering from diabetes or cardiovascular disease. They found no protective association between supplementation with vitamin E and the occurrence of major cardiovascular events. The results of this study do not support the popular belief that regular intake of vitamin E supplements may decrease the rate of occurrence of cardiovascular events, such as stroke, myocardial infarction, and cardiovascular-related deaths in high-risk patients.
