Objective: The aimof the present studywas to evaluate the indicative role of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) in oxidative stress. Patients andmethods: 200 type 2 diabeteswere included and 200 controls. Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c), free fatty acids (FFA) and homocysteine were determined by commercial kits. Quantitative insulin sensitivity check index (QUIKI) was calculated. Results: H2O2 concentrationwas increased fourfold in type 2 diabetes compared to controls. 6… Expand
