Benfotiamine Prevents Macro- and
Microvascular Endothelial Dysfunction and
Oxidative Stress Following a Meal Rich in
Advanced Glycation End Products in
Individuals With Type 2 Diabetes
Endothelial dysfunction is an early
(3), obesity (4), coronary artery disease(5), congestive heart failure (6), and type1 (7) and type 2 (8) diabetes. Postprandial OBJECTIVE — Diabetes is characterized by marked postprandial endothelial dysfunction
induced by hyperglycemia, hypertriglyceridemia, advanced glycation end products (AGEs), and dicarbonyls (e.g., methylglyoxal [MG]). In vitro hyperglycemia-induced MG formation and endothelial dysfunction could be blocked by benfotiamine, but in vivo effects of benfotiamine on and occurs not only in patients with car- postprandial endothelial dysfunction and MG synthesis have not been investigated in humansuntil now.

2 h and a maximum FMD impairment of Ϫ35.1% after 4 h, without affecting endothelium- independent vasodilatation. The effects of HAGE on both FMD and reactive hyperemia were completely prevented by benfotiamine. Serum markers of endothelial dysfunction and oxidative dysfunction, including insulin, folic acid, stress, as well as AGE, increased after HAGE. These effects were significantly reduced by ben- and statins (11). These approaches aim atreducing postprandial oxidative stress CONCLUSIONS — Our study confirms micro- and macrovascular endothelial dysfunction
