Background:Dyslipidemia was defined as a combination of high serum triglyceride ≥ 1.7
mmol/L, high serum LDL cholesterol ≥ 2.6 mmol/L and low serum HDL cholesterol <
1mmol/L for men and < 1.30 mmol/L for women. Non-HDL cholesterol ≥ 3.37mmol/Land
atherogenic index ≥ 0.11, were also considered abnormalType II diabetes mellitus (T2DM),
characterized by chronic hyperglycemia, and impaired insulin secretion and insulin
resistance. The objective of the present study was to study the lipid profile among type 2
diabetes mellitus patients.
Materials & Methods: The present study was conducted in the department of general
medicine. It comprised of 62 T2DM patients of both genders. Fasting blood sugar and lipid
profile such as serum cholesterol, serum triglycerides, HDL, LDL and VLDL was assessed.
Results and Observations:There were 31 males and females each. The mean serum
cholesterol level was 228.76 mg/dl, serum TG level was 202.6 mg/dl, HDL level was 39.8
mg/dl, LDL was 142.64 mg/dl and VLDL level was 43.5 mg/dl.
Conclusion: The diabetes has a significant role in alteration of lipoprotein levels. There is
significant alteration in lipid profile levels.

This short study enclosed a male category of Iraqis (343) divided into 2 groups one group
contain smokers males (183) who smoke over twenty cigarettes per day and group of nonsmokers
males (160), the mean age groups was (41 years), the predominant blood groups
was O+ and B+, for each groups. The results of this study revealed statistically highly
significant differences within the group of smokers ' body mass levels and blood lipid
levels in distinction to those of the non-smokers with a propensity to have obesity within
the category of smokers relative to the group of non-smokers, so blood lipid
concentrations were higher in total cholesterol, triglycerides and LDL cholesterol rate in
the smoker's community, and the HDL rate was lower. Whereas the body mass index for
this study was a statistically highly significant regression towards the high proportion of
obesity with high concentration levels of total cholesterol, triglycerides and low-density
fats and a drop in high-density fat concentration levels
