Serum total thiol estimation therefore provides measurement of the in vivo redox state, as thiols combat with free radicals to form disulphide. Decreased total thiol levels have been documented in various diseases like diabetes mellitus, neurological diseases, cardiovascular diseases and kidney diseases.
