Author(s): Dr. KS Abishek, Dr. Saritha K Narayanan and Dr. M Ramakrishna Rao
Objective: To estimate the level of fibrinogen in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Methods: We conducted a hospital based study of 100 random patients, divided into 4 groups, 25 in each group and compared serum fibrinogen between the group during the study period from November 2019 to April 2021.
The patients will be sub classified into four groups:
•Patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus without complications (Group – A).
•Patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus with microvascular complications (Group – B).
•Patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus with macrovascular complications (Group – C).
•Patients with type2 diabetes mellitus with both microvascular and macrovascular complications (Group – D).
Results: The difference between serum fibrinogen levels among 4 groups were statistically significant (p< 0.001)
Conclusion: Fibrinogen could be potential marker for prediction and prevention of microvascular and macrovascular complication.
