Symptoms of Vitamin E DeficiencyVitamin E deficiency typically occurs when diseases, such as liver disease or cystic fibrosis, impair the absorption of vitamin E or fat from food. Symptoms of vitamin E deficiency are muscle weakness, numbness, vision problems, weakened immune function, and tremors. Severe long-term deficiency could lead to heart disease, neurological problems, blindness, dementia, and the inability to completely control body movements.  Vitamin E ToxicityIt’s difficult to overdose on natural dietary sources of vitamin E, but cases have
been reported after people have taken especially high doses of supplements. Overdosing on vitamin E appears to be less harmful than overdosing on vitamins A and D, but medical attention might
still be necessary. Vitamin E could have blood-thinning effects that counteract the effects of vitamin K and result in heavy bleeding. People taking blood-thinning medications should avoid taking high doses of vitamin E. High vitamin E intake from food or supplements has shown benefits, such as increasing blood flow and potentially reducing blood pressure and the risk of heart disease. On the other hand, observational studies show taking vitamin E supplements has been linked to prostate cancer. The long-term safety and effects of vitamin E supplementation are debated among scientists. At this time, and until more research is available, taking vitamin E supplements isn’t recommended.
