Free radical-induced lipid peroxidation has been associated with numerous disease processes including diabetes mellitus. The extent of lipid peroxidation (LPO) and antioxidant defense system [i.e., levels of glutathione (GSH), glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PDH), glutathione reductase (GR), glutathione peroxidase (GPx), glutathione-S-transferase (GST), and catalase (CAT)] were evaluated in reticulocytes and erythrocytes of type 2 diabetic males and age-matched controls. Type 2 diabetics… CONTINUE READING
