type II diabetes mellitus, platelets, mitochondrial dysfunction, α-lipoic acid, Dialipon-Turbo


The results of experimental and clinical studies suggest that in the pathogenesis of a significant (if not most) pathological conditions a significant role is played by mitochondrial (MD) and/or endothelial dysfunction (ED). To study the morphofunctional state of cellular organelles in healthy people and patients with pathology, almost the only objects (in the absence of surgery) are blood cells, in particular, platelets (P). Material and methods. The study of platelet ultrastructure (P) was carried out in the blood of individuals with type II diabetes mellitus (DM) before and after the course of treatment with Dialipon-Turbo — the active substance is α-lipoic acid (ALA). The group (n = 20) included patients aged 50 to 70 years of both sexes, the average blood glucose content was 11.0 ± 1.0 mmol/L. The control group consisted of 10 healthy individuals, randomized by gender and age. Results. Based on the characteristics of the T ultrastructure in patients with ALA, it can be considered that the development of the disease is accompanied by disorders of the vascular wall due to changes in the function of the serotonergic system. The tendency to thrombosis increases, which in combination with the previous, can contribute to the formation of the pathology of the cardiovascular system. A disorder in the mitochondrial (MC) apparatus of cells is direct evidence that with DM, at least in blood cells, mitochondral dysfunction (MD) develops. Under the influence of DT, the morphogenesis of MC is activated and a significant decrease in the manifestations of MD occurs. Therefore, the inclusion in the complex therapy of DM, drugs that do not affect the main pathogenetic links of the disease (hyperglycemia), are able to prevent the formation (or reduce the manifestations) of concomitant pathology caused by disorders of the vascular wall and the development of MD.
