Assessment of serum uric acid in type II diabetes mellitus patients
Diabetes Mellitus (DM) is characterized by chronic hyperglycaemia with disturbances of carbohydrate, protein and fat metabolism, resulting from defects in insulin secretion or insulin action or both. The present study was conducted to assess serum uric acid as a risk factor for diabetes mellitus.
Materials & Methods: 90 patients with type II diabetes mellitus of both genders were tested for fasting and random blood sugar level. 10 ml of venous blood was obtained for assessment of uric acid level.
Results: Age group 40-50 years had 40, 50-70 years had 32 and >70 years had 18 patients. The difference was significant (P< 0.05). Hyperuricemia was present in 62 and absent in 28. The difference was significant (P< 0.05).
Conclusion: Most of the patients of type 2 diabetes mellitus chad high serum uric acid level.
