Evaluation of erythrocyte oxidative stress in diabetic macrovascular complications

Research output: ThesisDoctoral Thesis

Abstract

Cardiovascular complications in diabetes represent a major health problem worldwide, but knowledge of progression and degree of risk in pre-diabetes is limited. Significant changes in biomarkers of erythrocyte oxidative stress and indicators of related macrovascular events, which may underlie the development of diabetic macrovascular complications, have been consistently reported. The biomarkers are speculated to be emerging risk indicators. Thus, there is now a spectrum of conventional and emerging risk factors that need to be narrowed down to a useful panel of tests to improve early identifcation and the intervention at the prediabetes stage
