Author: Mohamed, Liza Hamdi; Salah, Esraa Mohammed; Morsi, Adel Nasr
Abstract: Type 2 diabetes is associated with large number of liver disorders including elevated liver enzymes, fatty liver disease, cirrhosis, hepatocellular carcinoma, and acute liver failure, so this study aimed to evaluate liver function tests in type 2 diabetic patients in Khartoum-Sudan. This a cross sectional study was conducted in AL-arbaeen Hospital, Khartoum, Sudan from January 2016 to May 2016. A total of 35 type 2 diabetic patients and 35 healthy control subjects were selected to assess the liver function tests (LFTs) by measuring Alanine aminotransferase (ALT), Aspartate aminotransferase (AST), Gamma glutamyl transpeptidase (GGT), Total protein, Albumin, FBG and HbA1c. The mean values of ALT, AST and GGT were significantly higher in patients than in the control group (P<0.05). There was no statistical difference in Total protein and Albumin values between patients and control group (P>0.05), the means of ALT, AST, GGT, Total protein and Albumin were within the reference range. Liver enzymes (ALT, AST and GGT) in type 2 diabetic patients are found to be significantly higher when compared with normal healthy controls.
