Study of Dyslipidemic Pattern and Glycosylated Hemoglobin Status in Diabetic Patients

Study of Dyslipidemic Pattern and Glycosylated Hemoglobin Status in Diabetic Patients

Background: Diabetes mellitus is a group of metabolic disease causes about 5% of all deaths globally each year. Majority of the diabetic patients also do suffer from dyslipidemia.
Aim and objectives: To study glycated hemoglobin levels (HbA1c) and serum lipid levels in diabetes patients and to compare glycated hemoglobin levels with their lipid levels in diabetes patients.
Material and methods: The present study was conducted at Gayatri Hospital, Gandhinagar, Gujarat between the periods of January 2011 to January 2012. It was an observational study in which total 60 diabetes patients of indoor as well as outdoor patient department were included.
Results: Out of 60 diabetic patients, 63.33% were male, 65% patients were dyslipidemic and 55% had poor glycemic control. Among poor glycemic control patients, 87.88% patients had dyslipidemia.
Conclusion: A significant correlation exist between HbA1C and lipid profile in diabetic patients. HbA1C can be used as an indicator of glycemic control as well as a biomarker of lipidemic state in diabetics.
