Abstract

Aim and objectives

The main aim of the study is to assess the significance of lipid profile and renal function in type 2 diabetic patients.

Methods

This retrospective observational study was conducted in the general medicine department of a tertiary teaching care hospital for a period of three months (June 2017-Aug 2017). A total of 70 patients with the history of type 2 diabetes were considered for the study. Statistical analysis was done by using graphpad prism.

Results

The average age of the study population was 50.47±14.32 years. Female patients were found to have higher fasting blood sugar (FBS) and postprandial blood sugar (PPBS) levels than male patients indicating poor glycemic control which can lead to diabetic neuropathy and nephropathic complications. The females patients had higher total cholesterol (TC), high density lipoprotein (HDL), Triglycerides (TGL), and very low density lipoprotein (VLDL) values. But low density lipoprotein (LDL) is higher in male diabetic patients compared to female diabetic patients. Blood urea was slightly elevated in females than males but was found to be in normal limits. Serum creatinine was found to be similar in both the study population.

Conclusion

In our study we have found that poor glycaemic control is observed especially in females diabetics compared to males. The prevalence of dyslipidaemia was also seen in both genders of diabetic patients. Patients should be self-aware of about routine monitoring of lipid profile and blood sugar levels so that they keep in control to avoid further cardiovascular complications.
