Plasma Paraoxonase-1 Activity Levels in Patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus in Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Lagos Southwest Nigeria, A Cross Sectional Stud
BACKGROUNDParaoxonase 1 PON1 is a high density lipoprotein HDL associated enzyme that has anti-inflammatory, anti-atherogenic and antioxidant function. PON1 is noted to be a determinant of resistance to the development of atherosclerosis through hydrolysis of phospholipid and cholesteryl ester hydroperoxides. This study was designed to assess PON1 activity levels among patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus T2DM in South West Nigeria. METHODS: This was a cross-sectional study done over a period of six months. A total of 138 participants; 69 with T2DM and 69 apparently healthy controls were recruited for this study. Fasting plasma glucose FPG , HDL cholesterol HDL-c and PON-1 activity were analyzed in the participants. Comparison of mean between the groups of participants was assessed using independent student t test while Mann-Whitney U test was used to compare two medians. P value was set at 0.05.
