Abstract

Obesity is an important and well-established risk factor for type 2 diabetes mellitus. The risk of diabetes increases progressively with increasing body mass index and waist-hip ratio. The present study was undertaken to establish the relation between W/H ratio and lipid profile in female type 2 diabetes mellitus patients. The study includes 64 female diabetic patients and was divided into Group 1 with 28 female diabetic patients with W/H ratio < 0.8 and Group 2 with 36 female diabetic patients with W/H ratio > 0.8. About 5 ml of blood sample was collected and used for the estimation of serum cholesterol, triglyceride and HDL- Cholesterol levels using standard methods. The circumference of the abdomen (waist) and the circumference of the hips were measured and the ratio was taken as Waist-Hip ratio (W/H ratio). From our study, we found that the mean serum cholesterol and triglyceride levels were higher in females in the diabetic group with W/H ratio > 0.8. The mean serum HDL-cholesterol levels were lower in females in the diabetic group with W/H ratio >0.8. When W/H ratio increases, serum cholesterol and triglyceride levels increases in female type 2 diabetes mellitus patients.
