Evaluation of T-lymphocytes in Peripheral Blood of Diabetic Patients


Our study includes the estimation of absolute number of T-lymphocytes by using (E-rosette) test in diabetic patients with hyperglycemia. The study included the collection of (20 )blood samples from individuals Type I ,II diabetes mellitus, ten of them were of type one I others of type II, with age range between (8-55)years and of both sexes. Blood samples from healthy individuals as control samples were used as well. The study showed a significant decrease in absolute numbers of T-lymphocytes in diabetic patients when compared with control and also a significant reduction in the absolute number in type I and type II diabetic patients compared with control, our result suggest that there is a defect in T-lymphocytes numbers in diabetic patients with hyperglycemia.
