Diabetes mellitus (DM) and obesity are interrelated disorder that is often associated with cardiovascular events due to hyperlipidemia. The incidence of obesity and DM are in alarming upward trend in Indian population and 80% Diabetics are overweight and obese. This report seeks to determine the co-morbid association of obesity and Diabetes mellitus on lipid parameters. Sedentary Non-obese and obese diabetic patients based on their BMI were evaluated for lipid abnormalities. The study subjects had statistically significant lipid abnormalities as compared to controls. Elevated T-CHOL(96%), TG(100%), LDL-C(96%,) VLDL-C(72%) and reduced HDL-C (92%) were noted in the obese diabetics as compared to T-CHOL(42%), TG(98%), LDL-C(44%,) VLDL-C(48%), and reduced HDL-C (30%) in the Non obese diabetes and controls. The study strongly indicates the co-morbid effect of obesity and sedentary life style on lipid parameters in Diabetic patients. "Diabetes lipidus" This morbid association has to be treated together.
