Abstract

Background: The highest prevalence rates of T2DM are found in developing countries. Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is a serious and growing global health problem. In 2013, there were 382 million people with diabetes; this number is estimated to grow to 592 million by 2035.Subjects and Methods: It’s a cross-sectional analytical study done in the Department of Biochemistry, VIMSAR, Burla. 100 known type-2 diabetic patients who gave consent to take part in the study were included as study subjects.Results:In our study the serum vitamin-D was correlated negatively with the HbA1C and the vitamin D deficiency was significantly associated with the glycemic control.Conclusion: The association of vitamin D deficiency with poor glycaemic control in patients with type-2 DM points towards the role vitamin supplementation could possibly play in regulation of glycaemia in these patients.
