Abstract

Background: Diabetes Mellitus Type 2 (DMT2) is one of the commonest disorders of endocrinology which is characterized by the raised blood glucose level due to insulin resistance in body cells. This study was aimed to determine the correlation between the glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) and serum uric acid (SUA) in patients with DMT2.

Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted in a tertiary care hospital of Lahore. 73 Patients’ recruitment was made via convenient sampling technique and a developed inclusion and exclusion criteria. Self-structured proforma was used for data collection. Data analysis was done in SPSS version 25.0.

Results: From total patients, 40 (54.79%) were women while 33 (45.21%) were men. Means of different variables like age, HbA1c, and serum uric acid level were 54.98 years with standard deviation (SD) of ±11.67 years, 7.90 with SD of ±1.85%, and 7.51 with SD of ±0.81 respectively. 32 (43.83%) patients had good glycemic control whereas 41 (56.17%) patients had poor glycemic control. The frequencies of hyperuricemia and normal SUA in study population were 35 (47.94%) and 38 (52.06%) respectively. The means of the HbA1c across gender had statistically significant difference. Difference in the means of the SUA level, across gender and between patients with hyperuricemia and normal SUA level, was also statistically significant. Moreover, correlation between the HbA1c and SUA was positive and statistically significant.

Conclusions: In a nutshell, this study suggests that increase in SUA level, worsen the glycemic control by raising glycated hemoglobin level among patients with DMT2.
