Table 2 Fasting lipid profile, liver & renal function tests of the study subjects

From: 11β Hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase – 1 activity in type 2 diabetes mellitus: a comparative study

Lipid profile by automated analyser or ELISA method. All other tests by ELISA cases and control p-value

Mean Standard Deviation Mean Standard Deviation
total cholesterol (mg/dl) 171 35 185 42 0.84

  1. t-test was done for parametric variables (Total Cholesterol, LDL,HDL,Triglycerides, alkaline phosphatase)
  2. Mann-Whitney test was done for non-parametric variables (Bilirubin, SGOT<SGPT,Albumin, Globulin,creatinine, 25(OH)vitamin D)
  3. Diabetic subjects have higher mean Alkaline phosphatase (ALP),Serum Glutamate oxaloacetate transferase (SGOT), Serum Glutamate Pyruvate Transferase (SGPT) and lower 25(OH) vitamin D, but better mean lipid parameters as compared to controls
