Abstract

Obesity is a positive risk factor in the development of type 2 Diabetes mellitus, dyslipidemia, insulin resistance and hypertension, which are linked more strongly to intra-abdominal and/or upper body fat than to overall adiposity. The present study was undertaken to establish the relation between W/H ratio and lipid profile in male type 2 diabetes mellitus patients. The study includes 69 male diabetic patients and were divided into Group 1 with 38 male diabetic patients with W/H ratio < 0.95 and Group 2 with 31 male diabetic patients with W/H ratio > 0.95. 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 males in the diabetic group with W/H ratio > 0.95. The mean serum HDL-cholesterol levels were lower in males in the diabetic group with W/H ratio >0.95. When W/H ratio increases, serum cholesterol and triglyceride levels increases in male type 2 diabetes mellitus patients.
