Background-Diabetic retinopathy(DR) is a microangiopathy which primarily affects the precapillary arterioles, capillaries and post capillary venules. . Aim:-To estimate serum lipids and glcosylated haemoglobins levels in patient with and without diabetic retinopathy.To determine the correlation between serum lipids and glycosylates hemoglobin level with the severity of diabetic retinopathy in India. Material and methods:-200 diagnosed cases of diabetes mellitus were divided into two groups. I

Both group of patients underwent lipid profile and glycosylated hemoglobin test and results were compared. Result : -Serum lipid levels are significantly raised in patient with diabetic retinopathy . Glycosylated hemoglobin level are significantly raised in patient with diabetic retinopathy(p<0.01), and higher levels are associated with progression from moderate to severe diabetic retinopathy (p<0.05) .
