Assessment of carotid intima-media thickness in patients of controlled and uncontrolled type 2 diabetes mellitus


Author(s): Dr. Rashmi Malik

Abstract: Background: Diabetes mellitus refers to a group of common metabolic disorders that share the phenotype of hyperglycemia. The present study was conducted to determine carotid intima-media thickness in patients of controlled and uncontrolled type 2 diabetes mellitus. Materials & Methods: The present study was conducted on 150 type 2 diabetes mellitus patients (75 in controlled diabetes and 75 in uncontrolled diabetes group) of both genders. All patients underwent carotid doppler of common carotid artery determined by higher resolution B mode ultrasonography using Philips Affinity 70 machine. The total of 3 values was averaged to give mean common carotid intima-media thickness value for each patient. Results: Group I had 40 males and 35 females whereas group II had 45 males and 30 females. The mean diameter of right CCA in group I was 6.4 mm and in group II was 7.3 mm, in left CCA was 6.5 mm and in group II was 6.8 mm, right ICA was 4.5 mm in group I and 4.7 mm in group II and left ICA was 4.6 mm in group I and 4.5 mm in group II. The mean IMT of right CCA in group I was 0.72 mm and in group II was 0.84 mm, in left CCA was 0.74 mm and in group II was 0.87 mm, right ICA was 0.43 mm in group I and 0.48 mm in group II and left ICA was 0.45 mm in group I and 0.54 mm in group II. Conclusion: Authors found increase diameter and thickness of intima media in uncontrolled diabetics as compared to controlled diabetics.
