During weight loss, erythrocyte thiamine pyrophosphate (TPP) decreased (221. ±. 52 to 195. ±. 39. nmol/L, P< 0.05) on a diet with adequate thiamine (1.1. mg/day) but was unchanged (217. ±. 55 vs 218. ±. 52. nmol/L, NS) on a high thiamine diet (2.8. mg/day). Attention to thiamine status may be required in patients with diabetes after weight loss.
