Abstract: Surgery provides a stress response resulting in various biochemical and hormonal changes. Hormonal interplay is the key role, in the evolution of stress response, which has been estimated as hyperglycemic response. Bases on the above literature findings the present study was planned to evaluate the blood glucose levels in the diabetic patients. The total 25 patients diagnosed with the diabetes and undergoing the surgery in IMS BHU, Varanasi from Aug 2015 to Dec 2015 were enrolled in the present study. The enrolled patients were receiving the general anaesthesia. These patients were enrolled in the group A and there are 25 patients without any symptoms of diabetes were also enrolled in the present study in group B. First fasting blood sugar levels were assessed pre operatively by glucometer with glucose oxidase strip by standard capillary method. After securing intravenous access pre operatively normal saline was used as maintenance fluid diabetic patients were on no insulin, no glucose protocol for assessing variation in blood sugar. Hence based on the data generated in the above two study group of the patients it can be concluded that the degree of rise of blood sugar due to surgical stress in controlled diabetics is not very significant when compared to non-diabetics. As in the diabetic patients the blood glucose level is well controlled with the medicines.
