Abstract

Aims: The aim of this study was to correlate serum uric acid (SUA) levels and carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT) in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM). Settings and Design: This study was a cross-sectional observational study on 103 diabetic patients conducted from September 2015 to May 2017. Subjects and Methods: We screened 103 patients with type 2 DM between the ages of 30-65 years. SUA levels and the CIMT were measured. The patients were divided into quartiles based on uric acid level. The CIMT of the quartiles is compared and analyzed. Statistical Analysis Used: Chi-squared test, Analysis of Variance, and Pearson's correlation. Results: Uric acid levels were positively associated with CIMT (P = 0.001). The association remained significant after further adjustment for potential confounders. Strong correlation was found among them as depicted by correlation coefficient (r = 0.779). Conclusions: Carotid atherosclerosis as measured by IMT is associated with SUA levels in patients with type 2 DM.
