Oxidative DNA damage and other risk factors, in relation to lifestyle in diabetes type II and metabolic syndrome patients

  title={Oxidative DNA damage and other risk factors, in relation to lifestyle in diabetes type II and metabolic syndrome patients},
  author={Rikard {\AA}sg{\aa}rd},
Lifestyle factors are important in prevention and treatment of lifestyle related diseases as obesity, type II diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. Patients with these diseases or in the risk zone of obtaining them are classified as having the metabolic syndrome. Diet, physical activity and stress management are considered as important factors for preventing or treating their development. In the development and progress of underlying mechanisms in these diseases, oxidative stress and… 

Does Organic Sprouted Whole Wheat Grain Flourless Bread Decreases DNA Damage in Diabetic Patients?

Only in patients with type 2 diabetes, Tonus®, bread intake led to decreased DNA damage compared to the level of DNA damage of these patients before they started Tonus® bread diet, statistical analysis revealed.



Nutritional influences on inflammation and type 2 diabetes risk.

The proposed "anti-inflammatory" strategies to tackle type 2 diabetes are broadly consistent with current public health nutrition guidelines: to achieve and maintain a healthy weight, to reduce saturated fat, to increase the proportion of less refined forms of carbohydrate, and to increase intake of fruits and vegetables.

Lipid peroxidation in diabetes mellitus.

This review will examine the mechanisms and clinical readouts of oxidative stress in this setting, the relationship between lipid peroxidation and antioxidant status in type 1 and type 2 DM, the effects of hyperglycemia and metabolic control on in vivo markers of lipid per oxidation, and the association between isoprostane formation and platelet activation.

Although other intervention strategies can reduce the incidence of diabetes, lifestyle changes are the most effective mean of delaying or preventing the development of type 2 diabetes mellitus.

Parameters of antioxidative defense in type 2 diabetic patients with cardiovascular complications

The hypothesis that there is reduced antioxidative defense in type 2 diabetics with prominent cardiovascular complications is confirmed, which negatively correlates with glucose concentrations and duration of diabetes and cardiovascular complications.

Lifestyle behaviors associated with lower risk of having the metabolic syndrome.

Oxidative Stress and Antioxidant Treatment in Diabetes

It appears that oxidative stress is only one factor contributing to diabetic complications; thus, antioxidant treatment would most likely be more effective if it were coupled with other treatments for diabetic complications.

Seasonal changes in markers of oxidative damage to lipids and DNA; correlations with seasonal variation in diet.

Obesity and vascular disease

The wider impact of obesity on vascular disease: the effect on cardiovascular disease of Obesity as primary cause of the metabolic syndrome and of obesity as a risk factor for heart failure, stroke, other vascular conditions, and cognitive decline is examined.

Antioxidant status and lipid peroxidation in type II diabetes mellitus with and without complications.

The results suggest that the antioxidant deficiency and excessive peroxide-mediated damage may appear early on in non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, before the development of secondary complications.

The role of oxidative stress in the onset and progression of diabetes and its complications: asummary of a Congress Series sponsored byUNESCO‐MCBN, the American Diabetes Association and the German Diabetes Society

This review summarises the results and discussions of an UNESCO‐MCBN supported symposium on oxidative stress and its role in the onset and progression of diabetes and suggests a role for ROI in the development of insulin resistance.
