The objective of this study is to demonstrate the changes in serum lipid of diabetic Iraqi men. Comparative change in serum lipid of 36- patient’s type-1 and 48-patients type-2 diabetic men, with two groups of healthy non-diabetic men. HbA1c is used both as a marker for long term glycemic control and the effect of metabolic control. The serum lipids are elevated in both types of diabetes with serum triglyceride more affected than other lipid types. The high density lipoprotein cholesterol was lower in type 2 diabetes than control. Together, these data demonstrated that the serum level of triglyceride is more affected than other lipid types in patients with DM.
