Lipid peroxidation may be important in the development of cardiovascular disease, a common cause of mortality and morbidity in non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM). We assessed the degree of lipid peroxidation by measuring plasma malondialdehyde, as thiobarbituric acid reacting substances (TBARS), in 23 non-insulin diabetic patients. Plasma levels of standardised alpha-tocopherol (vitamin E), lipid content of whole plasma and lipoprotein fractions, glycosylated haemoglobin… CONTINUE READING
