Abstract :
Background: Patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus have an increased prevalence of triglyceride abnormalities. Glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) is the indicator of glycemic status over long term. This study was over signed to evaluate the correlation between levels of HbA1c and triglycerides. Methods: This is a case control study aimed to evaluate the plasma levels of triglyceride and HbA1c of (50) patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus and (50) apparently healthy (non-diabetic) volunteers as a control group, the patient were chosen from Zeenam specialized center, age and sex of the test group were matched with control group. The plasma levels of triglyceride were measured using a spectrophotometer (bio system company reagent). HbA1c levels were measured using reagent and instrument from I-chrome Company. Data was analyzed using SPSS (version 20). Results showed a significant increase in the mean of the plasma levels of triglyceride of the diabetic group when compared with the control group (p.value <0.05) whereas HbA1c were increased in diabetic patients (type 2) compared to the control group (p.value >0.05). There was a strong positive correlation between plasma levels of triglyceride and HbA1c levels in diabetic patients. Plasma levels of triglyceride have a strong positive correlation with HbA1c levels, so results revealed that uncontrolled diabetic patients are at higher risk of hypertriglyceridemia compared to controlled patients.
