Study of the Correlation Between Serum C-reactive Protein and Bone Biochemical Markers in Type 2 Diabetic Individuals.


Abstract:Objective:- Diabetes Mellitus is a metabolic disorder and associated with number of disorders including bone,kidney ,liver, nerves, hart and blood vessels dysfunction. C- reactive protein (CRP) is a sensitive physiologicalbiomarker of subclinical inflammation associated with hyperglycemia. The objective of the present study was toestablish the relationship between CRP with blood sugar, Calcium (Ca+2), Phosphorus (PO4 -2) and AlkalinePhosphatase (ALP) in serum of Diabetes Mellitus type 2( DM2). Methods:- The study involved of 40 DM2patients and 30 non-diabetic individuals as control. The colorimetric analysis has been applied for blood sugar,Ca +2, PO4-2, ALP and CRP. Samples were collected from February 2013 to August 2013 of Tikrit TeachingHospital
