Abstract: Age adjusted incidence of coronary artery diseases is 3 to 5 times higher in both male & female diabetics compare to general population. Individuals with diabetes may have several forms of dyslipidemia leading to additive cardiovascular risk of hyperglycemia. So lipid abnormalities should be aggressively detected & treated as a part of comprehensive diabetic care. Hence based on the above literature findings the current study was planned to assess the triglyceride and serum lipid profiles in diabetic patients. The assessment of triglycerides and other serum lipids in diabetic patients were planned in the Department of Medicine in Vardhman Mahavir Medical College & Safdarjung Hospital. The 20 Diabetic patients and 20 controlled normal patients were enrolled in to the study. The age group of the patients are from 30-70 years. The biochemical parameters like Fasting glucose level, Glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c), Total cholesterol, Triglycerides, High Density Lipid, and Low Density Lipid were estimated. Dyslipidemia is one of the most common complications of diabetes mellitus. It is known to predispose to premature atherosclerosis and macrovascular complications. Since prevention is always better than cure, all persons with impaired glucose tolerance should switch over to a healthy lifestyle and diet, exercise regularly, avoid sedentary habits, increase fibre intake, and get regular check-ups of FBS and lipid profile to reduce the risk of coronary artery disease.
