Cigarette smoke is potentially capable of generating a high free radical load in the body and many patients with diabetes are smokers. This study was designed to investigate the relationship between long-term smoking and free radical activity in young adult insulin-dependent diabetic patients with no evidence of macrovascular disease. Eight-five patients (48 male) aged 17-40 years were studied. Mean duration of diabetes was 10.5 years (0.08-33) and 39 were cigarette smokers. All had normal… CONTINUE READING
