Abstract: Diabetes is a group of disorders characterized by high glucose levels. The incidence of diabetes is increasing rapidly with interference in electrolytes sodium (Na+), potassium (K+) and chloride (Cl-). The aim of the study was to estimate the electrolytes disturbance in non insulin dependent Diabetes Mellitus. Total of 102 subjects were included in the study, out of which two groups were formed; 52 diabetes mellitus and 50 healthy volunteer as controls. Biochemical analysis for Na+, K+, Cl- was performed by the Biolyte 2000 automatic electrolyte analyzer. The random glucose levels were estimated by direct enzymatic method using Randox kit. Student t-test was done to find out the difference between the two paired groups and Pearson's correlation was calculated to know the correlations between electrolytes and random glucose levels. In diabetes mellitus serum Na+ and Cl- levels were observed significantly increased (p<0.001, respectively) while K+ showed no significant (p>0.05) alterations. There was no significant correlation found between random glucose levels and electrolytes in this study. The study demonstrated significant association of Na+ and Cl- with type 2 diabetes mellitus. So, electrolytes should be measured during the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus.
