Diabetes mellitus is a common health problem characterized by hyperglycemia resulted from absolute or relative decrease in insulin secretion from β-cells of the islets of Langerhans in pancreas. Diabetes mellitus is considered as a member of oxidative stress syndrome. It is associated with an imbalance between types of free radicals and scavengers system. This study is aimed to assess the oxidative stress status in patients with type 1 or 2 diabetes mellitus disease, and to explore the good free radical marker in this state.
