Abstract

Background. Previous studies suggest that elevated oxidative stress implicates poor glycemic control resulting in the development of diabetic complications. By evaluating the relationship between paraoxonase (PON) and antioxidant enzyme activities and glycemic control in diabetic patients with and without complications, we investigated whether there is a role of PON and/or antioxidant status in glycemic control.
