Elevated levels of blood sugar is due to an impaired response of the body to insulin and is the causative factor for type 2 diabetes mellitus prevalent in obesity. Oxidative stress in the peripheral tissues plays a significant role as a cause for insulin resistance due to the elevated level of sugars (Biomedical Journal. 2017; 40:5:257-262). Grape polyphenols prevent the oxidative stress and insulin resistance induced by sugars in type 2 diabetes patients (Diabetes Care. 2013; 36:6:1454-1461).
