Abstract :

 Diabetes mellitus (DM) comprises a group of metabolic disorders presenting with hyperglycemia resulting from insulin deficiency or decrease glucose utilization and increased glucose production. The present work was aimed at evaluating the serum Zinc, Alkaline phosphatase and Ascorbic acid levels in Diabetes Mellitus and to compare their levels in normal and individuals.

The decrease in serum AA levels and the increase in serum DHA were highly significant. Moderate elevations in the serum AP activity in all the subgroups were observed except that it failed to achieve statistical levels of significance in NIDDM with nephropathy and NIDDM with retinopathy. Serum Alkaline Phosphatase activity is decreased in diabetics. It is an indicator of liver function that may be hampered in long term in diabetics. Serum Ascorbic acid is an antioxidant and its levels are decreased in diabetics. Its values can be assayed for monitoring oxidative reaction in diabetics. The estimation of serum zinc is not needed as there is no statistical difference.The needfor right eating, exercise and right thinking needs to be stressed, particularly for diabetics
