Dietary Total Antioxidant Capacity and the Risk of Chronic Kidney Disease in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes: A Nested Case-Control Study in the Tehran Lipid Glucose Study

Dietary total antioxidant capacity (DTAC) has been hypothesized as being involved in health promotion and disease prevention. However, data about the association of the DTAC (as estimated by ferric reducing antioxidant power) with diabetes chronic complications are scarce. Therefore, the aim of this study was to determine the associations between the DTAC and chronic kidney disease (CKD) risk in subjects with type 2 diabetic.
