Researchers evaluated the effects of a combination of vitamin C (1000 mg/day) and vitamin E (400 IU/day) on insulin sensitivity in about 40 healthy young men, as measured by glucose infusion rates (GIR) over a period of four weeks.
Preliminary data are available for the primary endpoints of 1) total insulin exposure, calculated from the measured blood levels for insulin for eight hours post-injection (AUC(insulin0to8hrs)); 2) maximum concentration of insulin (Cmax(insulin)); 3) total glucose infused over eight hours (AUC(GIR0to8hrs)); and 4) maximum glucose infusion rate (GIR(max)).
