Abstract

Diabetes mellitus is characterized by the excess of oxygen free radicals production and/or the decrease of antioxidant defense capacity. The intensity of oxidative stress is correlated with the appearance of complications of diabetes (diabetic neuropathy). This study was to assess the endogenous antioxidant defense capacity, the metabolic balance, respectively, nerve conduction speed in a group of patients with type II diabetes after two months of treatment with lipoic acid.
