Hydrogen sulfide potentiates the favorable metabolic effects of inorganic nitrite in type 2 diabetic rats.

Summary of "Hydrogen sulfide potentiates the favorable metabolic effects of inorganic nitrite in type 2 diabetic rats."

Decreased nitric oxide (NO) bioavailability and hydrogen sulfide (HS) deficiency have been linked with the pathophysiology of type 2 diabetes (T2D). Restoration of NO levels by nitrite have been associated with favorable metabolic effects in T2D. Moreover, HS can potentiate the effects of NO in the cardiovascular system. The aim of this study was to determine the effects of long-term co-administration of sodium nitrite and sodium hydrosulfide (NaSH) on carbohydrate metabolism in type 2 diabetic rats.
