ABSTRACT

Background: Acute ischemic stroke more frequently occurs in diabetic patients. Objective: The purpose of the present study was to observe the risk of diabetes mellitus in the occurrence of acute ischemic stroke in Bangladesh. Methodology: This case control study was carried out in the Department of Biochemistry at Dhaka Medical College, Dhaka, Bangladesh from January 2014 to December 2014 for a period of one (01) year. The case group consisted of male and female patients (age range 18-65 years) presenting with ischemic stroke. Age and sex matched healthy individuals were selected as the control group. History of diabetes of both cases and controls were recorded and blood sample was collected from both case and control after overnight fasting for the estimation of blood sugar. Results: A total number of 100 study subjects were taken of which 50 subjects presented with acute ischemic stroke were considered as case and the remaining 50 healthy subjects were taken as control. Diabetes mellitus was more commonly reported in case group (46.0%) than control group (6.0%) and the difference was found statistically significant (p= 0.001).The risk estimation was calculated at 13.34 OR (95% C.I. 3.66 to 48.62). Conclusions: The findings of this study conclude that diabetes mellitus was found to be significantly associated with acute ischemic stroke.
