Abstract

Serum vitamin E and cholesterol levels were determined for the residents in rural regions of Yamagata Prefecture, Japan. The average serum vitamin E were 0.99±0.25mg/100ml in 166 men, and 1.06±0.26mg/100ml in 178 women. Only 0.6% of the subjects were below 0.5mg/100ml. There was a significant difference between the serum vitamin E levels of men and women. However there were no statistically significant differences among serum vitamin E of various age groups. The best correlation for serum vitamin E was found with serum cholesterol.
