    Author(s): Fahad Ahmed Al-AbbasiFahad Ahmed Al-Abbasi

    Background: The disturbance in amino acids serum profile in Diabetes Mellitus has been studied previously; however, very obscured in the Saudi diabetic population. The aim of the current study is studying the relationship between the glycemic status and the amino acid profile in Saudi diabetic patients. Methods: Representative sample of Saudi Diabetes Mellitus type-I patients were included in accordance with the national population distribution; and a panel of 17 amino acids of different categories (essential, semi- essential and metabolic indicator amino acids) were assessed in response to their glycemic status. Blood samples of normoglycemic and hyperglycemic patients were withdrawn and assayed for glucose, total cholesterol, triglyceride, high density lipoprotein and low density lipoprotein. General biochemical serum profile was assessed (alkaline phosphatase (ALP), creat.. View More»
