Fasting blood glucose, uric acid and calcium levels of obese Sudanese women aged 40-50 years: Case study (Wad Medani) area


A total of 200 apparently healthy adult Sudanese females aged 40-50 years, were invited to participate in this study. Participants were classified into two groups, non-obese, and obese (BMI-C: <25 and >30kg/m2) based on WHO1997. Fasting blood glucose and uric acid concentrations were elevated significantly (P<0.05) in obese women’s serum, with means (97.57, 5.95) and (92.99, 5.28) for obese and non-obese women respectively. The finding was revealed that the calcium level has no significant difference between study participants with mean (6.68 and 7.71) for obese and nonobese women respectively. This study suggests that using the interaction between glucose and uric acid level for prediction of renal or any other cardiovascular complications in diabetic patients.
