Type 2 diabetes is the most prevalent metabolic disease currently known to man. Its hallmarks are pancreatic beta-cell dysfunction and insulin resistance. The Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) is a little-understood factor as far as the progression of Type 2 diabetes is concerned. Therefore, in this article, I will shed some light on what it is… Continue reading The Role Of Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) In The Progression Of Type 2 Diabetes
ROS action is generally beneficial. However, under diabetic conditions, chronic hyperglycemia and consequent augmentation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) deteriorate beta-cell function and escalate insulin resistance. This leads to an aggravation of type 2 diabetes. Additionally, chronic hyperglycemia and ROS are also involved in the development of atherosclerosis which is often observed under diabetic conditions.… Continue reading Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) Deteriorate Beta-Cell Function and Escalate Insulin Resistance.
