Assay White Blood Cell Differential Count in Group of Iraqi Patients' Child with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus

Abstract

This study was included (76) subjects, (46) child with diabetic patients, and (30) of them were healthy child considered as a control group. The average age of those children were (3- 13) years. All the samples were collected from the Yarmok hospital in Baghdad. The period between August 2014 to December 2015. All samples were estimated by Complete Blood Picture (CBP) by manual procedure and used whole blood, and Fasting Serum Glucose (FSG) estimated by enzymatic method. The study showed that the age group (9-11) is the most among the group of children with diabetes type I. Serum sugar level increased was highly significant (p<0.01) in comparison between control and patient. And the results showed there is significance (p<0.05) between the child patients and control groups in no. of WBC.c. In compared between the neutrophil cell count the results showed there is significance (p<0.05) between the studies group, while showed highly significant (p<0.05) from children and healthy children in lymphocytes cell count. And showed there is non-significant (p<0.05) in monocytes, eosinophil and basophile cells count. The aim of this study is to assess the role of the white blood cells of children with type I diabetes patients and the aged between (3-13) years.
