ABSTRACT

Background: Obesity is lead component of metabolic syndrome and dyslipidaemia is shown to play diverse roles in type-2 diabetes and its complications resulting in morbidity and mortality Aim: Obesity and lipid profile changes in diabetes are to be assessed and their possible bearing on observed hearing loss and delayed reaction time reasoned with reference to scientific understanding. Method: 51 type-2 diabetes patients and 51 age sex matched non-diabetic controls are examined for obesity parameters and lipid profile. Possible relevance of the findings to observed complications in the patients is contemplated by literature reference. Conclusion: Obesity and dyslipidemia appear to be important in initiation, progression and complications of type 2 diabetes. Consensus needs to develop on routine management of diabetes with due cognizance of need to treat obesity and dyslipidemia, beyond usual focus on glycaemic control.
