Baliarsingh et al investigated the therapeutic impacts of tocotrienols on serum and lipoprotein lipid levels in type 2 diabetic patients. A randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled design involving 19 type 2 diabetic subjects with hyperlipidemia was used. After 60 days of tocotrienol rich fraction(TRF) treatment, subjects showed an average decline of 23, 30, and 42% in serum total lipids, TC, and LDL-C, respectively. The goal in type 2 diabetics is to reduce LDL-C levels < or = 100mg/dl. In the present investigation tocotrienols mediated a reduction of LDL-C from an average of 179 mg/dl to 104 mg/dl

These findings suggest that daily intake of dietary TRF by individuals with type 2 diabetes will be useful in the prevention and treatment of hyperlipidemia and atherogenesis.

TRF lowers lipid peroxidation, which in turn reduces intimal thickening and preserves the internal elastic lamina in artery walls. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2956867/ 
Tocotrienols’ cardioprotective effects are mediated through their antioxidant mechanisms and their ability to suppress inflammation, and inhibit HMG-CoA reductase, a rate-limiting enzyme in cholesterol biosynthesis.

Probiotics and prebiotics also influence LDL-C levels.
