Oxidative Stress in Metabolic Disorders/Diseases

  • Mohinder Bansal
  • Naveen Kaushal


Oxidative stress is central to a variety of metabolic pathologies such as diabetes, obesity, aging, and other secondary complications associated with them. Reactive oxygen species by modulation of their key metabolic pathways act as unifying factors in these diseases. The current chapter discusses the role of oxidative stress in the regulation of such molecular metabolic pathways involved in the pathogenesis of diabetes, obesity, aging, and inflammatory conditions, which constitute the metabolic syndrome.
