Abstract :



            Diabetes mellitus (DM) is one of the most common metabolic disorder and leading cause of death and disability in the world. The incidence of diabetes is increasing globally and in India. Approximately one third of patients with type 2 diabetes have hypomagnesaemia, mainly caused by enhanced renal excretion. Magnesium deficiency is associated with the poor glycemic control.

            Bilirubin acts like an antioxidant, help to reduce tissue damage and inflammation. Initial studies have shown that in humans with higher levels of Bilirubin are less likely to have DM.

Aim & objectives:–

To study the magnesium and bilirubin levels in uncomplicated type 2 DM and compare with the normal subjects.

Materials & methods:–

This was a comparative case control study carried out in 50 T2DM patients and 50 healthy controls. All these biochemical parameters done on automated chemical analyzer.


This study found that, Bilirubin and magnesium levels were significantly lower in T2DM as compared to healthy controls.


Poor glycemic control an oxidative stress in diabetes can caused profound damage to the vital organs and hypomagnesaemia can lead to development of complications in diabetes.
