AbstractBackground: The massive population of mankind lives with the diagnosis of diabetes mellitus. Asian countries have the highest number of people with diabetes. Because of genetic variation and high vulnerability, classified via a low BMI, excessive body fat proportion and a high degree of insulin resistance, the population of Asian Subcontinent faces higher risk for diabetes and its complications. Studies have shown a direct relationship between increasing BMI and raised TC, LDL, and TG. This correlation between BMI and lipoprotein levels, especially LDL, has been proposed to be a contributing risk factor for cardiovascular diseases in obese individual. Methods and Materials: This Study was conducted in Medicine ward of NIMS Hospital, Jaipur. Approval to conduct the study was obtained from Institutional Ethics Committee before starting the study. Total number of 76 patients were considered which includes 54 males and 22 females. Only those who agreed to participate were taken. Conclusion: This Study shows the Significant Correlation between BMI with Lipid profile and HbA1c in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus patients. These results are imperative as they back up that there is modest impact of BMI on lipid profile. Further studies with large sample size are needed to identify the causes of obesity that would help in better understanding of its influence on lipid profile.
