Vitamin C and diabetes mellitus

(1/1)

sithari:
Free radicals are implicated in pathogenic tissue damage in diabetes, which is responsible for many adverse reactions such as non-enzymic glycosylation of proteins.

Vitamin C being the principal modulator of free radicals is postulated to alleviate these effects.

Studies among animal models in which diabetes has been induced have shown that Vitamin C supplementation decreases cataract formation, prevent hyperlipidaemia (high lipid content of blood), and an improvement in myocardial (heart muscle) performance. The mechanisms are not fully understood.
