Abstract

Introduction

Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a group of metabolic diseases. It is associated with well known complications linked to either microangiopathy, macroangiopathy or a combination of both. Some studies found that there were changes in respiratory system or pulmonary functions in diabetes so this study was planned to see the effect of type 2 DM on pulmonary functions.

Materials & Method

The present study was undertaken in two groups. Hundred male individuals were included in the study with each group comprised of 50 individuals. For pulmonary function tests we used computerized Spirometer Statistical difference between the data obtained in various groups was evaluated by z test.

Observations

Reduction in FVC-Forced vital capacity reduction is statistically significant. FEV1-reduction is statistically significant. FEV1/FVC (%) reduction is statistically significant.

Conclusion

So it is always better to detect the respiratory damage in diabetes patient at an early stage to prevent the further complications
