An excessive synthesis of ROS results in oxidative stress and results in deleterious process that damages cell structures i.e. lipids, proteins, and DNA. Oxidative stress plays a major role in various human disease states, including endocrine dysfunction. A number of diseases connected with free radicals have recently been reported in the medical field. The risk of diseases caused by oxidative stress is exacerbated by an unhealthy lifestyle, chemical exposure, pollution, cigarette smoking, drugs, illness, and stress, among other things. Antioxidants are molecules that can scavenge free radicals and aid in the reduction of oxidative stress-induced damage. Traditional herbal treatments and dietary items were the primary sources of antioxidants for ancient peoples, protecting them from free radical damage. In this article, we present a brief overview of the role of oxidative stress in a variety of common human endocrine disorders, such as diabetes and thyroid disease, as well as a discussion of the therapeutic potential of dietary antioxidant (Vitamin C & Vitamin A) techniques.
