ABSTRACT:   The persistence of hyperglycemia in diabetic patients leads to the generation of tree radicals. Free radicals in the cells play important roles in the pathogenesis of type 2 diabetes mellitus and in the development of diabetes complications. Alterations in lipid peroxidation and antioxidant defense have been investigated as related with diabetes mellitus. Therefore, this study was aimed to investigate oxidative stress marker and antioxidant status in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus and controls. For this purpose, 30 type 2 diabetes mellitus patients from diabetic clinic at Mandalay General Hospital and 30 apparently healthy controls were studied. The subjects were females, 3 5-50 years of age. The plasma malondialdehyde level was represented as oxidative stress marker. The plasma ascorbic acid level was determined as antioxidant vitamin. The mean plasma malondialdehyde level (9.7
