Abstract

RELATION BETWEEN PERCENT – BODY FAT, DERIVED FROM SERUM CHOLESTEROL AND BLOOD SUGAR LEVEL IN NONINSULIN DEPENDENT DIABETES MELLITUS

Mrunalini Kanvinde*, Dr. Vivek Nalgirkar and Vijaykumar Gupta

ABSTRACT

Purpose: Our main purpose was to study relation between percent – body fat, serum cholesterol and blood sugar level in non- insulin dependent diabetes mellitus, which is found to be increased. As skinfold thickness has very important relation with serum cholesterol and blood sugar level, adiposity is main factor in hyperglycemia in diabetic persons which is due to impaired glucose tolerance. Material and Method: This study was carried on 100 non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus, While carrying this study, parameters included were skinfold thickness, serum cholesterol level, blood sugar level, weight, height, chest circumference. Percent: body fat was easily derived from tricep skinfold thickness and sub-scapular thickness rather than thigh region, juxta-nipple, fore-arm region and calf of the leg. While doing this study, their socioeconomic status was also taken into consideration. Result – Percent body-fat derived from skinfold thickness increase in non- insulin dependent diabetes mellitus persons. After doing statistical analysis, a significant correlation was found percent body-fat derived from skin-fold thickness and serum cholesterol (P<0.01) and also a highly significant correlation between serum cholesterol and blood sugar level (P>0.05) in non- insulin dependent diabetes mellitus. Conclusion – Thus a close relation was found between percent body-fat, derived from skinfold thickness, serum cholesterol level and blood sugar level, which increases with age.

Keywords: Skinfold thickness, percent body-fat, serum cholesterol level, blood sugar level, non - insulin dependent diabetes mellitus.
