Abstract

Smoking is proven to be an independent risk factor for development of atherosclerosis and amongst diabetics it increases the risk of cardiovascular complications and stroke. Smoking is associated with increase in the serum concentrations of total cholesterol and very low- density lipoprotein cholesterol, and a decrease in the serum high- density - lipoprotein choolesterol concerntrations. Atherogernic index of plasma (AIP) is found to be useful makers in patients with diabetes as it increases the risk of cardiovascular disease. Present study was done to compare the lipid profile and AIP in diabetic non- smokers and diabetic smokers. There was significant increase in total cholestrol (p<0.01),triglcerides (p<0.01),TC/HC ratio (p<0.001) and AIP (p<0.001) and significant decrease in Dhl (p<0.05) in diabetic patients who are smokers compared to diabetic patients who are non- smokers.According to the study, AIP could be used as a simple parameter to early assessment of risk for development of atherosclerosis in diabetic smokers
