Prediabetes (PRD) has been closely associated with chronic periodontitis (CP). Lately, studies have proposed the role of glutathione peroxidase (GPx), a ubiquitous antioxidant, in potentiating insulin resistance (IR), a significant factor in PRD. As overexpression of GPx is associated with CP as well as IR, the current study was undertaken to evalu...
