I know very little about vitamin E.
It’s not crazy to think that vitamin E might help but my doctors have recommended against this type of experimentation (vitamin C would also have been worth trying), reasoning that the aggressive supplementation likely required in order significantly impact on my UA would involve uncertain side effects, making this approach riskier than xanthine inhibitors (not to mention less reliable).
Moderately improving my vitamin intake on the other hand (for instance by eating a bit more of the relevant foods) was naturally OK’d (but without any hope that it would have much impact on my UA).
Your special condition might make the risk/reward of experimentation with large amounts of vitamin E more appealing though. Just make sure the risks are carefully assessed and the potential downsides monitored.
