Background: Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a group of metabolic disease characterized by increase blood glucose level resulting from defects in insulin secretion, insulin action, or both.
Methods: This is a cross sectional case control study.100 patients of type 2 diabetes mellitus and 100 age and sex matched healthy controls were taken. Lipid profile were done in cases and controls using appropriate tests.
Results: Mean age in diabetic patients was 48.23± 9.24 years and control patients was 47.28± 9.84 years and age range was 20-70 years. The FBS levels in all the diabetics were significant (p<0.05) as compare to control. There was significant difference in mean HDL, Triglycerides level in diabetic and control patients (p<0.05). There was no significant difference in LDL, Cholesterol level in Diabetic and control patients (p>0.05).
Conclusion: We conclude that there is a high prevalence of elevated lipid and lipoprotein levels among the diabetic patients showing that they are more prone to these abnormalities,
