Abstract

The aim of this study was to evaluate the level of malondialdehyde (MDA) (one of the final products of lipid peroxidation and well-known marker of oxidative stress) in semen of infertile men with type 2 diabetes and to investigate its relationship with their glycaemic control. Forty infertile men with type 2 diabetes were evaluated. The mean ages were 36.5±8.0. Men with diabetes were divided into two groups. Group A (n=20) with glycated haemoglobin >10% and group B (n=20) with glycated haemoglobin -1) was significantly higher than in group B patients (0.43±0.13nmolml -1) (P value
