Scientific Centre of Family Health and Human Reproduction Problems, Siberian Branch, Russian Academy of Medical Sciences, Irkutsk, Russia Incidence, severity, and rate of complications of type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1D) associated with many factors including geographic location and ethnicity. Sixty-five patients of the Russian and Buryat populations having 1 type diabetes were examined. All patients examined were born in Buryat republic and were living there. It was revealed that the changes in indices of lipidogramms in patients of Russian population are atherogenic variant of dislipidemia. During the analysis of the indices of carbohydrate metabolism in the control and patients’ groups there was found reliable increase of lactic acid level and ratio of lactic acid/pyruvic acid in patients of Russian population. Lactic acid content and ratio of lactic acid/pyruvic acid in this group increased by 2.4. Thus, more significant increases in lactic acid blood levels in Russian with T1D indicates an anaerobic tendency of their metabolism with acidosis development.
