Disorders of Metabolism

- Pp. 128-138 (11)

A.K.M. Shamsuddin and Guang-Yu Yang


InsP<sub>6</sub> and inositol independently may help in diabetes; InsP<sub>6</sub> by stimulating insulin secretion by the pancreatic β cells. Both inositol and InsP<sub>6</sub> can prevent oxidative damages to the cells and tissues inflicted through advanced glycosylated end products by acting as antioxidants. InsP<sub>6</sub> and inositol could replenish the low intracellular inositol since they do not need insulin to gain entry into the cell. They also have positive effect on the abnormalities of fat metabolism such as hypercholesterolemia and fatty liver.
