Original Research Article Background: Type-2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) with cardiometabolic risk factors poses the high risk of atherosclerosis. The Intima-Media Thickness (IMT) of carotid artery is reliable indicator of cardiovascular diseases. Aims and objectives: To study the Correlation of Serum Triglyceride level with Carotid Intima-Media Thickness (CIMT) in Type-2 Diabetes Mellitus patients. Materials and Methods: Presentretrospective study was performed on 250 T2DM patients . T2DM

Results: Out of 250, 152 were male and 98 were females. Mean age of cohorts was 53.03 years. out of 250 subjects only 79 has normal fasting triglyceride (FTG) and post prandial triglyceride (PPTG) (mean CIMT was 0.95±0.27), 88 subjects has abnormal PPTG and normal FTG with (mean CIMT 1.63±0.40 mm) and 83 subjects had abnormal FTG and PPTG i.e. ≥150 mg/dl and significantly high CIMT as 1.96±0.61 mm. Conclusion: FTG and PPTG levels are significantly correlated with the carotid intima media thickness. PPTG is indecently and strongly associated with CIMT.
