    Background and aim: Recent research articles suggest that a low urine pH related to more complications in type 2 diabetes mellitus. Our aim was to study of insulin resistance in type 2 diabetes patients using homeostasis model assessment and analysis of fasting urine pH as a predictor of insulin resistance in type 2 diabetes. Materials and methods: This prospective study was conducted in our hospital with type 2 diabetes mellitus patients during the period 2019 to 2020. A total of 102 patients have been taken for the study. Participants were isolated into two groups with urine pH <5.5 and the group with urine pH ≥ 5.5. We then further investigated the association between low urine pH levels and insulin resistance. Descriptive data were shown as the mean value of (Standard error) or number (%). The unpaired two sample t-test was used fo.. Read More»
