What you'll learn

Oxygen is absolutely necessary for life processes. It can generate highly reactive molecules during metabolic processes and become part of potentially harmful and damaging molecules called free radicals. read more »»

Physiological levels of reactive oxygen species (ROS) generated in metabolism are removed by endogenous antioxidant systems. In addition to the endogenous antioxidant systems, exogenous antioxidants of dietary origin also play crucial roles in maintaining the redox balance in the body and prevent oxidative stress.

Increased oxidative stress causes healthy cells of the body to lose their structure and function by the ROS insult. It is when the antioxidant systems in the body deplete or get limited that this damage becomes debilitating and lead to complications.

A comprehensive understanding of the above objectives empowers the health professional in the successful management of patients with diabetes. This course will provide
a) An introduction to oxidative stress in diabetes
b) Endogenous antioxidants & how do they work
c) Exogenous antioxidants, sources, bioavailability, mechanisms by which they reduce oxidative stress
d) Importance of diet in the management of oxidative stress
e) Points to consider in diet formulations
f) Empowering the patient: Patient education in the management of diabetes

Who Should Attend?
Physicians and health care specialists involved in the management of patients with type 2 diabetes.

Key concepts covered include:

“Objectives of the course include the following aspects:

  • Modalities that can be considered to neutralize/minimize oxidative stress & secondary complications of diabetes
    a) Major endogenous Antioxidant systems and their functions
    b) Exogenous Antioxidants, their sources, bioavailability, and mechanisms of action
    c) Health benefits of different classes of exogenous antioxidants
    d) Modalities one can follow in managing oxidative stress
    e) A thorough understanding of the above is considered very important for the successful management of patients with diabetes.”
