T here is evidence that diabetes is characterized by taurine deficiency (1–4), which has been linked to diabetic retinopathy, neuropathy, and nephropathy (5–7). Taurine is involved in neuronal modulation, osmoregulation (8), and protection against oxidative stress (9). Its plasma levels are maintained within a normal range through protein intake, and de novo synthesis is limited by the activity of hepatic cysteinesulphinic acid decarboxylase, which is low in humans. Taurine depletion can occur… CONTINUE READING
