[Levels of Krebs cycle metabolites in the blood and urine of patients with diabetes mellitus].


PMID 6856592

Abstract

The blood oxaloacetate, alpha-ketoglutarate, malate and citrate concentrations and citrate excretion with the urine were studied in 86 patients with diabetes mellitus. An enhanced citrate content and lowered oxaloacetate, malate and alpha-ketoglutarate concentration were detected in the blood of patients with diabetes mellitus. Compensation of the disease and combined pathogenetic therapy are factors, promoting normalization of Krebs cycle metabolite content.
