Correlation of glycated albumin levels with serum lipid profile in prediction of coronary heart disease of type 2 diabetes patients

Suresh Babu Kondaveeti, Anand Shaker Ivvala, Chidambaram Rangarajan.

Objective: Cardiovascular complications are the major cause of morbidity and mortality in diabetic patients. An attempt has been made to evaluate the glycated albumin levels with risk factors for coronary heart disease in type 2 diabetics. Materials and Methods: the present study includes 115 type 2 diabetic patients along with the 109 healthy controls the levels of glycated albumin, HbA1c fasting plasma glucose, total cholesterol, low density lipoproteins, triglycerides were assessed. Results: Our study shows a significant better correlation of GA with lipid profile of Type 2 diabetes patients with CHD compared with HbA1c. The levels of high density lipoproteins were low in the type 2 diabetics compared to controls. Conclusion: The study therefore suggests the importance of assessing glycated albumin and lipid profile along with the other routine investigations in diabetic patients to prevent primary and secondary measures to mitigate the devastating consequences of diabetes leading to coronary heart disease.

Key words: Coronary heart disease, glycated albumin, lipid profile, type 2 diabetes
