The Plasma Vitamin C and E Status in Type II Diabetes with Malaria in Owerri, Nigeria
Nnodim Johnkennedy and Opara Ambrose Uche

Abstract:
The plasma vitamin C and E in type II diabetes with malaria were investigated. Eighty confirmed type II diabetes with malaria aged 45-65 years were selected for the study. Sixty normal subjects free from diabetes and malaria were used as control. The levels of plasma vitamin C and E in type II diabetes with malaria were significantly decreased (60.42± 3.7 mmol/L and 8.61±1.12 mg/L respectively) when compared with the control (76.29±9.10 mmol/L and 12.13±1.54 mg/L) (p<0.05). This shows that plasma vitamin C and E are depleted in type II diabetes with malaria. Therefore, there could be an immense benefit in eating foods rich in Vitamin C and E.
