Modernization of our lifestyle and absurd eating habits has taken its toll on the human health. People are getting affected by diabetes and this number is on a gradual rise. Diabetes is considered among one of the most deadly disease with a wide variety of symptoms. While diabetes is detected by the blood glucose level and it may only be recorded when the symptoms of this disease starts surfacing and gets beyond any control. Interestingly, a link of this disease has been established with the bacterial infection and directly as well as indirectly with the immune response, thus causing the lipid peroxidation in an indirect way. Lipid peroxidation has also been reported in the patients suffering from diabetes. In this review, we try to establish a critical link between the lipid peroxidation and diabetes. This will help in considering lipid peroxidation as an early marker for diabetes. It will improve the present detection system and thus will help to control this deadly disease.
