 About the Book 

This volume summarizes current understanding of the pathogenic role of oxidative stress in the onset and progression of diabetes and its complications, and presents results of studies aimed at regulating oxidatively induced complications through the use of antioxidants.Examines the presence of impaired microcirculation, capillary hypoxia, and ischemia syndrome in diabetic complications!Designed to stimulate scientific discussion and curiosity about the causes of diabetes, with contributions from nearly 65 clinicians and researchers who cite more than 1300 sources, Antioxidants in Diabetes Managementfocuses on stringent control of hyperglycemia to prevent or modify onset and progressionpromotes the development of intervention strategies because of the therapeutic limitations of hypoglycemic therapyemphasizes the potential synergistic effects of an interlinked antioxidant networkinvestigates the controversy surrounding the significance of oxidative stress markers in diabeteshighlights oxidative stress and antioxidant treatment in animal models for juvenile and adult onset diabetesexplores the hypothesis that ischemic reperfusion is the primary cause of diabetic polyneuropathylinks protein kinase C activation to the development of diabetic vascular complications and the effectiveness of vitamin E in preventing these abnormalitiesspotlights recent clinical trials of therapeutic effects of antioxidants to reduce insulin resistanceand much more!Illustrating the therapeutic potential of antioxidants for the treatment of diabetes, Antioxidants in Diabetes Management is an unparalleled reference for endocrinologists, nutritionists and dietitians, cell biologists and biochemists, cardiologists, pathologists, and graduate and medical school students in these disciplines.
