Influence of dyslipidemia in patients with diabetes mellitus type 2 and essential hypertension

Author(s):
AO Ikwuka
Abstract:
The aim of this work is to study the changes in blood lipid profile in relation to the level of glycated hemoglobin (HbA1C) in patients with diabetes mellitus type 2 and essential hypertension.
Materials and Methods: Examined were 48 patients with diabetes mellitus type 2, made up of 22 patients with diabetes mellitus type 2 without essential hypertension and 26 patients with diabetes mellitus type 2 and concomitant medication-compensated essential hypertension. Determinations of total cholesterol, high density lipoprotein (HDL), low density lipoprotein (LDL), triglycerides and HbA1C levels were carried out.
Results: More severe dyslipidemia (and a higher risk of cardiovascular disease) was found in patients with diabetes mellitus type 2 and concomitant essential hypertension. Correlated relationship between blood lipid profile level and the average level of HbA1C was established.
Conclusion: The adverse effects of dyslipidemia on the clinical course of diabetes mellitus type 2 and essential hypertension were established.
