Abstract Diabetes and its complications represent a major socioeconomic problem. RECENT
ADVANCES: Changes in the balance of hydrogen sulfide (H(2)S) play an important
role in the pathogenesis of ß-cell dysfunction that occurs in response to type 1
and type 2 diabetes. In addition, changes in H(2)S homeostasis also play a role
in the pathogenesis of endothelial injury, which develop on the basis of
chronically or intermittently elevated circulating glucose levels in diabetes.
