Metabolic syndrome patients have functional deficiency of vitamin E

I am posting this mostly for the revelation of the study that blood levels of vitamin E are not indicative of tissue levels. This is yet another example of the unreliability of blood tests to demonstrate tissue levels or activity of a specific substance like estrogen or, in this case, vitamins. So, if you get a blood test and it shows high level of vitamin E that may actually mean you have tissue deficiency as the vitamin may not be getting transported in the tissues.

"...If vitamin E is a fat the surely those with excess fat should have excess vitamin E? A study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition suggests not. The researchers found that even though circulating vitamin E in the bloodstream may be high, in obese people this essential micronutrient is not finding its way into tissues where it is most needed."

An excess of iron, by destroying vitamin E and oxidizing the unsaturated fats in red blood cells, can contribute to hemolytic anemia, in which red cells are so fragile that they break down too fast. In aging, red cells break down faster, and are usually produced more slowly, increasing the tendency to become anemic, but additional iron tends to be more dangerous for older people.

There was also a recent study posted on obesity and iron.
