Objective: To compare HbA1c level with Triglyceride / HDL cholesterol (TG / HDL-C) ratio and Triglyceride Glucose (TyG) Index and to show its relation with HbA1c level.
Material and Method: Our study was carried out retrospectively on patients who applied to the Department of General Internal Medicine, xx Cumhuriyet University Hospital, Turkey, between January 1, 2015 and January 1, 2020. The study is a retrospective review of 2938 patients. HbA1c, Triglyceride and Glucose values of the patients were recorded. Triglyceride Glucose Index and Triglyceride / HDL Cholesterol Ratio were found by calculated. Patients were grouped according to their HbA1c levels, Triglyceride Glucose Index and Triglyceride/HDL Cholesterol ratios.
Results: We found that the TG/HDL-C ratio and the TyG index were statistically significantly lower as the HbA1c level decreased. When we grouped the patients according to their gender, we found that male patients had higher HbA1c, higher TyG index and TG / HDL-C ratio than female patients.
Conclusion: We found a positive correlation between HbA1c levels and TG / HDL-C ratio and TyG index. According to the results of our study, we think that there is an increase in the risk of coronary artery disease and cerebrovascular disease in patients with poor glycemic control.
Key words: Diabetes Mellitus, Triglyceride / HDL Cholesterol Ratio, Triglyceride Glucose Index
