Decreased Thiol Levels, Increased Disulphide Levels Are Associated with Increased Blood Glucose Levels in Newly Diagnosed Type 2 Diabetes

This study examined the thiol/disulphide balance in patients with newly diagnosed T2DM using a newly developed technique. The thiol/disulphide balance, an important marker of oxidative stress, altered towards a decrease in thiol and an increase in disulphide in the newly diagnosed T2DM patient group.


Objective: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the relation between newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes and the thiol/disulfide balance, used as a marker of oxidative stress, by measuring that exchange using a novel technique.
