Abstract

Background and aim: Data on oxidative stress in type 2 diabetic patients with diabetic nephropathy is scant. The objective of this study was to investigate possible associations between total oxidant status (TOS) and the severity of diabetic nephropathy in type 2 diabetic patients by using a novel automated measurement method.
