Objective: To determine the HbA1c levels correlation with cardiovascular events among non-diabetic patients.
Material and methods: The prospective study was conducted at cardiology department of Liaquat University of medical and health science. Total 130 cases were selected in this study. All the cases were selected with different cardiovascular diseases and having age more than 40 years. All the cases having multiple risk factors of cardio vascular disease were excluded from the study. HbA1c blood test was send to the diagnostic research lab of Liaquat University of Medical and health science. HbA1c was recorded in the proforma according to risk factors. All the data regarding HbA1c level and its related cardiovascular risk were entered in the proforma.
Results: Mean age of the patients was found as Mean+SD=42.4+5.43 years. While majority of the cases 45 (42.6%) were found with age group of 51–60 years. Male were found in the majority 64% and female were found 36% in the cases. According to the cardiovascular risk factors smoking was found most common in 30.76% of the cases, 2nd most common risk factors were found hypertension and dyslipidemia, with percentage of 25.38% and 23.07% respectively. In this series HbA1c associated with hypertension, obesity and dyslipidemia.
Conclusion: We have found that HbA1c level is highly correlated with risk factors of CVD, especially in obesity, hypertension and dyslipidemia amongst individuals without DM.
