Rinkita Ganguly, Dr. Mainak Deb and Dr. Pushpendra Sharma
Diagnosis of Diabetes in its very early stage will become very important in the days to come to prevent the morbidity and mortality of the patients. From this study a relationship between amino acid losses in urine of diabetic patients and their glycaemic control has been established. The observations of this study indicate that analysis of acidic, branched chain, aromatic amino acids and in particular, the measurement of His, Glu, Met, in the urine of diabetic patients under treatment holds significance, as it can be used as an index of hyperglycaemia and effectiveness of treatment. Since urine samples can be easily obtained from patients and Chromatographic method of amino acid estimation is cheap and convenient, it can be easily used for semi quantitative estimation of certain amino acids.
