Oxidative stress in diabetes.

Author information

Pennington Biomedical Research Center, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, USA.


Oxidative stress and diabetes, both Type 1 and Type 2 as well as their related conditions have been extensively studied. As diabetes, obesity and metabolic syndrome have reached at epidemic levels, there is a huge need and effort to understand the detailed molecular mechanisms of the possible redox imbalance, underlying the cause of pathology and progression of the disease. These studies provide new insights at cellular and subcellular levels to design effective clinical interventions. This chapter is intended to emphasize the latest knowledge and current evidence on the role of oxidative stress in diabetes as well as to discuss some key questions that are currently under discussion.
