Role of Inflammatory Markers as a Predictor of Peripheral Vascular Disease in Chronic Asymptomatic Diabetic Patients

Author(s): D Sangeetha and V Padma*


To identify whether inflammatory markers are good predictors of peripheral vascular disease in chronic asymptomatic type 2 Diabetes Mellitus patients. The reactive of the study is to identify overly sensitive inflammatory markers which will be useful in early detection of peripheral vascular disease in asymptomatic diabetic patients and to identify a simple blood test for this purpose. Total number of patients included in this study were 88. There were 31 males, 57 female patients ranging from 30 years to 70 years, who were diagnosed to have type 2 diabetes mellitus of more than 3years of duration. Although coronary and peripheral arterial diseases are macrovascular complications of diabetes, the clinical manifestations of peripheral vascular disease occur almost a decade later than coronary artery disease. Thus inflammatory markers serve as a sensitive tool to identify the subset of chronic diabetics who are at a high risk of developing peripheral vascular disease.
