Abstract

Type 2 Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a heterogeneous disease which is characterized by variable degrees of insulin resistance or/and impaired insulin secretion as well as its deficiency (absolute/relative). The study was carried out to determine the relationship between serum concentration of uric acid and HbA1c among the geriatric group with type 2 diabetes mellitus in diabetic camps carried out at Amravati. We performed a cross sectional study on 30 patients of both genders of geriatric group, and a control group of 30 age and sex matched normal healthy individuals. Serum uric acid was tested by Uricase/PAP method [7, 15] and HbA1c by NycoCard READER II (color reflectometry) [6]. We observed the positive correlation between uric acid and HbA1c, as 0.080 which was found to be significant as 2.50 between the uric acid and HbA1c in geriatric patients of type 2 Diabetes. In healthy controls, we observed the positive correlation between uric acid and HbA1c as 0.074 which was not significant.
