Diabetes looks different in different patients. The signs and symptoms, severity and also type of diabetes can vary. But one thing is always the hyperglycemia. This study aim estimation of Fasting blood glucose, Post prandial blood glucose, Total Cholesterol, Triglycerides, High Density of Lipoproteins-Cholesterol, Low Density of Lipoproteins-Cholesterol, Very Low Density Lipoproteins-cholesterol, Apolipoprotein A-1(apo A-1) levels in type 2 diabetes mellitus cases and normal healthy controls. 50 T2DM cases and 50 age matched healthy controls. The mean and standard deviation were calculated for all the Biochemical parameters. The significance between the groups were determined using Student t- test for Equality of means. The p-value of < 0.05 was considered significant. This study report to measuring apolipoprotein-A1 levels are useful for early detection of atherosclerosis even before the inflammation sets in and the treatment directed towards increasing the apo A-1 levels may prevent the morbidity and mortality occurring due to coronary artery atherosclerosis.
