Previous studies have predicated an association between UA, the end product of purine metabolism to T2DM as it is said to induce hyper insulinemia and impaired glucose tolerance. UA is also associated with the alterations of other organ function such as Kidney and Cardiac and elevated UA has been implicated in a number of other complications of T2DM such as neuropathy, obesity, hypertension and metabolic disorders. This study was undertaken to find out the association between UA and HbA1c in T2DM in comparison with controls. Very good correlations (p<0.0001) were found out between patients & controls for both UA and HbA1c there by linking UA to T2DM. Further researches are needed in this direction with large number of patients and to include UA as one of the tests to be done for T2DM patients.

Keywords: UA,T2DM,HbA1c,CVD.
