Coenzyme Q10 and retinopathy

Plasma coenzyme Q10 levels in type 2 diabetic patients with retinopathy.

STUDY CONCLUSION:

The ratio of ubiquinol-10/ubiquinone-10 is found lower in patients with PDRP. High levels of plasma ubiquinol-10/ubiquinone-10 ratio indicate the protective effect on diabetic retinopathy.
