Abstract:

A total random sample size of 387 subjects was selected in the age group of ≥20 years representing rural and urban area of Ludhiana district. The anthropometric measurements were taken of all the subjects to determine if it can be a risk factors of type 2 diabetes. The anthropometric profile of subjects revealed that the mean body weight of rural and urban diabetic men was (78.85kg, 75.58 kg respectively) significantly higher (p≤ 0.01) as compared to rural and urban non diabetic men (72.14 kg and 70.97 kg, respectively). Similarly, the waist and hip circumference of diabetic men was significantly higher (p≤ 0.01) as compared to non diabetic men. Derived anthropometric measurements of diabetic and non diabetic subjects showed that the average BMI of rural and urban diabetic men was significantly (p≤ 0.01) higher (26.82 and 26.71 kg/ m2) as compared to rural and urban non diabetic men (24.64 and 24.91 kg/ m2).
