Background: C-reactive protein is one of the most sensitive markers of systemic inflammation. Numerous studies have found that baseline levels of C-reactive protein are associated with risk of future myocardial infarction, stroke, peripheral vascular disease and cardiovascular death amongst apparently healthy populations.

Aims & Objective: To find the association of hs-CRP and diabetes mellitus in the population of our region.

Material and Methods: hs-CRP level in cases of diabetes was compared with that of non-diabetic healthy controls in our rural based tertiary care hospital. The analysis was done with 50 diabetic and 50 non-diabetic individuals. Anthropometric and biochemical parameters were studied to assess the association of hs-CRP with in diabetes mellitus.

Results: Anthropometric parameters were found to be high in diabetic subjects compared with non-diabetic subjects. The high hs-CRP levels in diabetic subjects were also observed.

Conclusion: Serum hs-CRP levels were positively related to anthropometric parameters. The relationship of hs-CRP with glycaemic control was studied with HbA1c, and it was positively correlated with hs-CRP. The results concluded that hs-CRP has strong association with diabetic individuals.

Key words: Diabetes mellitus, hs-CRP, BMI, HbA1c, association
