Background : Hyperlipidemia and dyslipidemia generally coexist in diabetic patients with poor glucose control. Although they have been shown to be independent significant risk factors for vascular complications, the interaction of hyperglycemia and dyslipidemia increases the risk of macro and micro vascular complications synergistically. Objective : To study lipid profile in diabetic patients as compared to healthy controls. Design : 56 subjects were recruited for this study from outpatient department of Endocrinology, SKIMS Srinagar. Their medical history was recorded and blood samples analysed for lipid profile. Results : Diabetic patients showed a significant increase in the levels of cholesterol, triglycerides and LDL as compared to controls. Also, among all risk factors obesity was the commonest one followed by hypertension. Conclusion : The present study shows high prevalence of dyslipidemia in subjects with type II diabetes.
