A STUDY ON CORRELATION BETWEEN HBA1C AND SERUM LIPID PROFILE AMONG TYPE 2 DIABETES MELLITUS
Keywords:Type 2 diabetes mellitus, HB1AC, lipid profile
Objective: To study correlation between HB1C and serum lipid profile among type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Methods: The cross-sectional study was carried out on 146 patients above the age of 30 years presenting with type 2 diabetes in OPD/wards of medicine department at Tertiary Care Center, South Gujarat.
Result: In study the parameters Fasting blood sugar (FBS), Glycated hemoglobin (HB1AC), triglycerides (TG), total cholesterol (TC), high density lipoprotein (HDL), low density lipoprotein (LDL), very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL)were studied. LDL, TC, were high in poor glycemic control group (HB1C>7) as compared to good glycemic control group (HB1C<7), HDL is significantly low in poor glycemic control group.
Conclusion: HB1AC is significantly correlated with lipid profiles. Type 2 diabetic patients are more prone to dyslipidaemia. Hba1c is significantly correlated with lipid profiles. So hba1c can be used as an indirect indicator of dyslipidaemia in type 2 diabetes in addition to as glycemic control biomarker.
