Inflammatory markers in Type II Diabetes mellitus
Anju Varghese, Asha NS, Celine TM, Prasanna D
The present study was carried out to investigate the levels of inflammatory markers and to observe the correlation of inflammatory markers with glycemic status in Type II diabetes. 35 diabetic patients, already diagnosed and attending diabetic clinic and 35 normal healthy subjects aged 30-70 years were recruited for the present study by convenient sampling technique. Mean values of TSA, C–reactive protein, Ceruloplasmin, FBS and HbA1c in diabetics was significantly higher when compared to normal subjects. No significant correlation has been found between inflammatory markers and glycemic status in type II diabetes mellitus. Significant positive correlation was observed between HbA1c and FBS. A chronic low grade inflammation was observed in diabetic patients. This is evident by significant increase in inflammatory markers. We recommend further detailed studies and tests to determine the possible risk of vascular complications in diabetic patients.
