Vasukidevi Ramachandran


Recent evidence suggests that type 2 diabetes mellitus is a fast growing disease in world wide. The multiple complications are associated with T2DM.Serum secreted frizzled-related protein 4 (SFRP4) is a biomarker for T2DM. 503 patients with impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) and normal glucose tolerance (NGT) were investigated. Majorityof the patientsbelong to the low socio-economic groups between 40-70 years. These 503 participants, 407 females and 96 were normal females. ECG (Electrocardiogram) parameters were also in the study. SFRP4 levels were measured by ELISA kit SFRP4 levels were associated with a higher risk ofdeveloping type 2 diabetes (T2DM),attempt was to provide an outline for T2DM by SFRP4 estimation, will be an important tool to detect the early diabetes.
