Introduction: Diabetes mellitus is a metabolic disorder in which metabolism of various trace elements is being altered. Present study has been carried out to determine association between serum ferritin and type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Aim: To analyze level of serum ferritin in type 2 diabetes mellitus patients in comparison with healthy controls.
Materials and Methods: The present cross-sectional study was carried at Clinical Chemistry Laboratory, department of Biochemistry, GMERS Medical College and Hospital, Vadnagar, Gujarat. There were 100 cases having minimum 5 years history of type 2 diabetes mellitus residing at North Gujarat. There were 100 healthy controls in this study. GOD-POD (Glucose Oxidase- Peroxidase) method was used for estimation of Glucose.Nephelometry method was used for estimation of Ferritin and HbA1c.
Results: In comparison to healthy controls; Serum ferritin level was found high in Type 2 DM patients.
Conclusion: High level of serum ferritin was found in patients of type 2 diabetes mellitus patients who have poor glycemic control.
Keywords: Type 2 diabetes mellitus, Serum ferritin, HbA1c.
