Study of lipid profile & electrolyte levels in diabetes
Dr. Naresh Kumar Jha
The study has planned in Shree Narayan Medical Institute & Hospital, The 50 Diabetic patients and 50 controlled normal patients were enrolled in to the study. The age group of the patients are from 25-70 years. The biochemical parameters like Fating glucose level, Glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c), Total cholesterol, Triglycerides, High Density Lipid, and Low Density Lipid were estimated. Also the electrolyte levels like sodium, potassium, chlorine and bicarbonate is also monitored. The concentration of HbA1c, Cholesterol and low density lipid implies a positive correlation with the triglycerides. The levels of the high density lipid and serum chlorine showed negative correlation with triglycerides. Cholesterol and low density lipid showed significant positive correlation with HbA1c. The study also showed that the diabetic patients have electrolyte imbalance characterized by depletion in the levels of sodium, potassium and chlorine and increased in the levels of the bicarbonate ions. Hence from the data generated above and the outcomes it may be established that the diabetic patients are prone to lipid and electrolyte imbalance. Primary acknowledgment and result of these levels of biochemical and electrolyte levels are supportive in anticipation of the further impediment.
