High vitamin C levels may stave off diabetes
NEW YORK A study published in the July 28 issue of Archives of Internal Medicine has found that lots of vitamin C in the diet may decrease the risk of Type 2 diabetes.
The study looked at 21,831 men and women aged 40 to 75 and found that those with the highest amounts of vitamin C in the blood were 62 percent less likely to develop the disease. The results did not change significantly when other issues related to diabetes risk—age, gender, alcohol use, weight and so forth—were not taken into account.
During the course of the study, which lasted for 12 years, 735 subjects developed Type 2 diabetes.
