Hyperglycemia and exposure to radiation may have diverse effects on red blood cells (RBC). This work is intended to test and evaluate some biophysical parameters of RBC in order to assess the impact of combined hyperglycemia and gamma irradiation. Blood was collected from adult male Albino rats. The turbidity test and dielectric properties of RBC were determined. The membrane effective capacitance, AC conductivity, average membrane solubilization,and hemolysis showed to be correlated with the combined effect of hyperglycemia and gamma irradiation.
Key words: Hyperglycemia, gamma irradiation, dielectric properties, red blood cells
