Bottom Line: In contrast, SBP, TAS, activities of GPx and GR were reduced in diabetic SHR.Antioxidant (honey) treatment further reduced SBP in diabetic SHR but not in diabetic WKY.It also increased TAS, GSH, reduced glutathione (GSH)/oxidized glutathione (GSSG) ratio, activities of GPx and GR in diabetic SHR.

ABSTRACT
Oxidative stress is implicated in the pathogenesis and/or complications of hypertension and/or diabetes mellitus. A combination of these disorders increases the risk of developing cardiovascular events. This study investigated the effects of streptozotocin (60 mg/kg; ip)-induced diabetes on blood pressure, oxidative stress and effects of honey on these parameters in the kidneys of streptozotocin-induced diabetic Wistar-Kyoto (WKY) and spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR). Diabetic WKY and SHR were randomized into four groups and received distilled water (0.5 mL) and honey (1.0 g/kg) orally once daily for three weeks. Control SHR had reduced malondialdehyde (MDA) and increased systolic blood pressure (SBP), catalase (CAT) activity, and total antioxidant status (TAS). SBP, activities of glutathione peroxidase (GPx) and glutathione reductase (GR) were elevated while TAS was reduced in diabetic WKY. In contrast, SBP, TAS, activities of GPx and GR were reduced in diabetic SHR. Antioxidant (honey) treatment further reduced SBP in diabetic SHR but not in diabetic WKY. It also increased TAS, GSH, reduced glutathione (GSH)/oxidized glutathione (GSSG) ratio, activities of GPx and GR in diabetic SHR. These data suggest that differences in types, severity, and complications of diseases as well as strains may influence responses to blood pressure and oxidative stress.

Mentions: Figures 9 and 10 show the levels of reduced glutathione (GSH) and GSH/GSSG (oxidized glutathione) ratio in control and STZ-induced diabetic WKY and SHR. The levels of GSH and GSH/GSSG ratio were similar in the control WKY and control SHR. With STZ-induced diabetes, the levels of GSH and GSH/GSSG ratio still remained comparable in the diabetic WKY and diabetic SHR. Treatment with honey increased GSH significantly (p < 0.01) in diabetic SHR but not significantly in diabetic WKY. Also, with honey treatment, GSH/GSSG ratio was increased significantly (p < 0.05) in both diabetic WKY and diabetic SHR. The levels of GSSG remained the same in all the groups (data not shown).
