Authors: B. Jyothirmayi, V.M. Vinodhini
Aim: The aim of the study was to assess the association of lipid profile with HBA1C in diabetic complications.
Materials and Methods: For our study 50 type 2 diabetes mellitus patients with complications were included as study group and 50 type 2DM patients without complications as controls. The study was conducted at SRM Medical college Hospital and Research centre, Kattankulathur, Chennai. Fasting sample was collected and processed for plasma sugar, lipid profile and HbA1C.
Results: Significant correlation was found between total cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL. Correlation was not significant was between HDL and HbA1C even though there was decrease in HDL levels compared to control group.
Conclusion: Dyslipidemia with poorly controlled blood sugar levels are contributors for diabetic complications, which can be prevented by regular monitoring of blood sugar levels and lipid profile.
