Orally administered tryptophan and experimental type 2 diabetes

Abstract

There is a link between diabetes and oxidative stress. Hyperglycaemia leads to free radical generation and alterations of endogenous antioxidants. Our aim is to study the effect of orally administered L-tryptophan (TRP), the melatonin precursor, an endogenous antioxidant, on circulating levels of glycaemia, insulin and melatonin, and on the superoxide… (More)
