Abstract :

 Aims and objectives: The present study was conducted to evaluate the association of gall stone disease in type 2 diabetic patients in Indian population and to evaluate the correlation of GSD with autonomic neuropathy. Method and materials: The study was conducted on randomly selected 100 clinically diagnosed type 2 diabetic patients matched with 100 healthy randomly selected non diabetic patients .Prevalence of gall stone disease was noted with ultrasound evidence of gall stone disease. Patients with and without gall stone disease were further examined for autonomic neuropathy clinically. Results: In diabetic population gall stone disease was present in 45 patients and absent in 55 patients and in non-diabetic group gall stone was present in 15 subjects and absent in 85 subjects. In patients having diabetes with gall stone disease, autonomic neuropathy was present in 26 and absent in 19 patients. While in patients having diabetes without gall stone disease ANP was present only in 13 patients and absent in 42 patients. Conclusion: Diabetes is a definitive risk factor for gall stone disease and association of autonomic neuropathy with prevalence of gall stone disease is highly significant in our study.
