Abstract

Cholesterol, triglycerides and high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol levels were measured in Indian patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes in the young (NIDDY). Both cholesterol and triglycerides were increased as compared with reference values. The HDL cholesterol levels were lower in cases of NIDDY. Aberrations in the lipid and lipoprotein levels were more pronounced in males. Significant correlations were found between the levels of cholesterol and glycosylated haemoglobin, and triglycerides and glycosylated haemoglobin; triglyercides and HDL cholesterol were inversely correlated. No correlation was found between triglycerides and obesity. NIDDY does not differ from the more common type of non-insulin-dependent diabetes in mature patients with regard to cholesterol, triglyceride and HDL cholesterol levels.
