Prof. Dr. Raid M.H. Al-Salih* and Roaa Mohammed Nashee
The aim of this study was to investigate the role of trace elements (copper, iron and zinc) as oxidants and antioxidants in type 2 diabetic patients and metabolic syndrome. Blood samples were obtained from (110) patients with type 2 diabetes with and without metabolic syndrome, as well as (50) healthy subjects as a control group. They divided into three groups as the following: Group A(control ):- Included fifty healthy subjects aged (35-65 years). Group B (Type 2 diabetics):- Included sixty four patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus aged (35-65). Group C (diabetics type 2 with metabolic syndrome):- Included forty six patients with metabolic syndrome aged (35-65). Results: The results show a presence of a significant increase in copper and iron in all groups of patients in type 2 diabetes and type 2 diabetes with metabolic syndrome in comparison with control group. But, zinc levels showed a significant decrease in all groups of patients in type 2 diabetes without metabolic syndrome in comparison with control group. Also, Cu, Zn showed a significant increase in all patients groups in type 2 diabetics with metabolic syndrome in comparison with type 2 diabetics group. While, Fe showed a significant increase in all patients groups of patients in type 2 diabetes in comparison with type 2 diabetics with metabolic syndrome group.
Keywords: The aim of this study antioxidants in type 2 group.
