Publication Date : 21/04/2016
Present study has been undertaken to assess the metabolic profile of 918 adult type-2 diabetic patients attending the different clinics in Tirupati town of Andhra Pradesh state. Data on demography, socioeconomic status, physical activity, anthropometry, blood pressure and lipid profile are procured. BMI is greater in women and WHR is greater in men than to their counterparts. 38 percent of males and 42 percent of females are classified as hypertensives. Hyperglycemia is 16 percent in males and 20 percent in females. Hypercholesterolaemia is 42 percent. Low HDLC is observed to an extent of 55 percent in males and 50 percent in females. 46 percent of the males and 50 percent of the females are documented with a cluster of risk factors termed as metabolic syndrome. Multinominal regression model reveals that overweight/obese subjects pose greater burden of MetS than normal weight subjects. In conclusion, obese adults are particularly at risk of developing MetS, with significant implications for their health. Hence, promotion of healthy lifestyles, increased physical activity may reduce the burden of developing MetS mediated diseases.
