The concentration of antioxidant such as glutathione, high density
lipoprotein (HDL) were measured to assay the oxidative stress associated with Diabetes millitus(DM) compared with healthy controls, Glutathione was found to be reduced when compared with those of healthy controls, this depletion in antioxidant concentration may be due to their protective role against oxidative stress. The other finding is that Diabetes has lower HDL levels, but higher in low density lipoprotein(LDL), very low lipoprotein(vLDL), total Cholesterol(tCH) and Triglycerides(TG).
