Oxidative stress and the use of antioxidants in diabetes: Linking basic science to clinical practice

I did some research on antioxidants and diabetes and this published report does a nice job of summarizing a lot of the relevant studies.  I follow Dr. Bernstein's advice and do supplement with ALA and EPO in addition to a green tea (my daily vitamin regime is broader then this, but these are the antioxidants I am taking--NOTE: it is known that ALA will lower your A1C, so you need to be aware of that as you will no longer be able to use that number to calculate your true average over that last 3 months).   For more info on supplements there is a great thread on Dr. B's forum (requires registration and log in) located here which discusses studies and opinions on supplements more generally.
