Abstract

This work aims to compare the levels of blood sugar, hemoglobin and glycosylated hemoglobin between type 2 diabetic patients of different gender and age, living at different altitudes in Yunnan, China. We selected 410 patients with type 2 diabetes from Kunming, Lijiang and Jinghong of Yunnan Province and compared their levels of fasting blood sugar, 2- hour postprandial blood sugar, hemoglobin and glycosylated hemoglobin. We categorized our findings in terms of gender, age, and the altitude where the patients normally inhabit. We analyzed the Pearson correlation coefficient of single factor of altitude and glycosylated hemoglobin. The fasting blood sugar, 2-hour postprandial blood sugar and glycosylated hemoglobin were not statistically different between the patients with type 2 diabetes of different genders and ages living at different altitudes, but the hemoglobin concentration were found to be statistically different. No significant relationship was, however, observed between the levels of altitude and glycosylated hemoglobin. Levels of altitude, gender and age showed effects on hemoglobin concentration in diabetic patients, but they failed to exert any significant effects on blood sugar and glycosylated hemoglobin concentrations.
