Various studies have shown that diabetic dyslipidemia is common in females than in males. High body mass index is also responsible for dyslipidemia. We tried to see if there was any influence of sex on diabetic dyslipidemia in BMI matched diabetic males and females. A cross sectional study was done on 49 type 2 diabetic patients(22 males and 27 females) on oral hypoglycemics with a duration of more than 10 years of diabetes. Their age, BMI and blood pressure was taken after informed consent. FBS, HbA1c, LDL, HDL, T G and TC were taken. The mean age ±SD of males and females was 64.5±3.2 years and 58.3 ±2.6 years respectively. The BMI of males and females (24.62±3.47 vs 24.13±3.14) was statistically non significant. The mean value of HbA1c was more in females (7.71±0.89 vs.7.69±1.87) but not statistically significant. Fasting blood glucose is more in males (140.9±46.24) than females (130.37±27.89) but again not statistically significant. In females the mean values of total cholesterol (229.14 ±29.97 vs 225.13±26.9) and LDL (148.66±16.26 vs 144.31±18.32) is more than males but not significant. The mean value of HDL (40.76±4.09 vs 49.36±5.02) and triglycerides (153.8±36.44 vs 157.3±24.99) was low in female than in male with no statistical significance. In conclusion, the results of the present study shows that gender does not play a significant role in diabetic dyslipidemia.
