Objective: To determine the correlation of plasma glucose levels with lipid profile in type 2
Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM).
Study Design: Case control study.
th Place & Duration of study: This study was conducted in Army Medical College Rawalpindi from 11
th November 2014 to 11 November 2015.
Materials & Methods: The number of participants comprised in the study was 120. The study population was
divided into two groups A & B. 60 individuals were placed in each group. Group A comprised of Type 2 diabetics
and group B were healthy controls with no major illness. The patients were recruited from the Military
Hospital's medical wards and Endocrinology outpatient department. The participants' blood samples were
analyzed for Fasting Plasma Glucose (FPG), glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) and lipid profile (Total
Cholesterol, Triglycerides, LDL-Cholesterol and HDL-Cholesterol).Body mass index (BMI) was calculated by
measuring the height and weight of men & women based on body fat.
Data was analyzed using SPSS version 20.
Results: FPG was (11.23±3.65 in diabetics vs 4.35±0.68 in controls), HbA1c was (6.84±0.482 vs 5.31±0.487).
Serum total cholesterol was (4.68±0.96 vs 3.99±1.01 p
