dc.description.abstract Vitamin A and E status are widely studied in various populations because of their association with several diseases. Fasting plasma vitamin A and E status of 857 Lebanese adults residing in Dar Al-Fatwa, Beirut were assessed using high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). Mean retinol and α-tocophetol concentrations were 59.8 ± 29 μg-dL and 1.0 ± 0.5 mg-dL, respectively in which only 0.2percent were retinol-deficient, while 0.7percent were α-tocopherol-deficient Vitamin A and E correlated positively with plasma concentrations of total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein (LDL)-cholesterol, and triglycerides. Vitamin E, but not vitamin A, correlated positively with blood pressure and glucose. A good status of vitamins A and E was found among the studied Lebanese sample and the elevation in vitamin A and E levels was associated with unfavorable lipid profile. © Hogrefe and Huber Publishers.
