Vitamin E- how much is too much?


, : Vitamin E- how much is too much?. Pediatrics 74(4): 625-627

The therapeutic use of vitamin E to treat small, premature infants and possible toxic effects of excess vitamin E intake are discussed. Serum analyses of infants under 1500g at birth treated with oral vitamin E indicated that potentially toxic vitamin E levels occured using recommended dosages. The adequacy of vitamin E status in newborn infants is diffult to assess. Furthermore, the plasma level at which vitamin E toxicity risk changes significantly in very low birth weight infants is not known; vitamin E may be beneficial to such infants, but this remains to be fully verified. The various tocopheral isomers and their analysis also are discussed. (wz)
