Abstract

Diabetes mellitus refers to a group of common metabolic disorders that share the phenotype of hyperglycemia. In recent years, androgen deficiency has captured interest of many researchers and they have associated not only with general health of men but also with certain common systemic disorders like abdominal obesity, type 2 diabetes mellitus and others. This was a cross sectional study. 150 cases of type 2 diabetes mellitus and 50 cases without type 2 diabetes mellitus matched for confounding factors were taken as controls. Serum total testosterone level is assessed by chemiluminiscence method. Mean serum total testosterone (ng/dl) in duration of diabetes group <5 years was 298.44±68.13 while in duration of diabetes group 6-10 years it was 268.90±62.06, in duration of diabetes group 11-15 years, it was 243.00±56.15 and in duration of diabetes group >15 years it was 218.00±10.95(p=0.001). Mean serum total testosterone (ng/dl) in HbA1C group <7% was 526.37±141.58 while in HbA1C group 7.1-9.0% it was 292.46± 71.68, in HbA1C group >9% it was 267.97± 63.32 (p<0>
