Author(s): Dr. Sanjay Kumar and Dr. Anita Kumari
Abstract:Background: The prevalence of hypercholesterolemia (TC>200md/dl) alone, as reported in numerous studies across India, has varied from about 20% to 35%. However, what is more important is the pattern of dyslipidemia. When compared with the western populations, Indians and migrant Asian Indians tend to have higher triglyceride levels and lower HDL-C levels.
Subjects and Methods: This was a comparative study conducted among 120 cases. A pre-structural proforma will be used to collect baseline date detailed clinical history with clinical examination and relevant investigation will be done on participating individuals.
Results: There was correlation between lipid levels and duration of diabetes for all lipid fractions which were significant.
Conclusion: Correlation coefficient between nephropathy and lipid profile was found to be significant.
