Abstract :

To know the prevalence of hypertriglyceridemia among newly detected Type-2 diabetes in Coimbatore. Three twenty newly detected type-2 diabetes of age 25 years to 45 years were selected for the study. Selected anthropometric, biochemical and clinical profile was analyzed. It was found that 30.6% had borderline high TGL, 6.8% had high TGL and 4% had very high TGL. After 3 months triglyceride and HbA1c was analyzed for the borderline high triglyceridemic diabetics for the sub-samples. It was found that 95% of their triglycerides turned to normal. At the same time HbA1c was reduce by 08% to 2.6% for the selected diabetics. It was found that glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) was positively and significantly related with triglycerides (r= 1 and p<0.00001). Although high triglycerides do not cause diabetes, uncontrolled diabetes can elevate triglyceride levels.
