Abstract:

Diabetes Mellitus and its complication still account for much of the morbidity and mortality in patients and neuropathy is one of its complication. Our study is to study the effect of zinc supplementation on glycemic control and electrophysiological recording (brainstem auditory evoked potential) in type 2 diabetic patient with neuropathy. This study was carried out in the Department of Medicine, S.N. Medical College and Associated Hospitals Agra from july2013 to January 2015. Type 2 diabetic patients with Neuropathy receiving oral ZINC supplementation, metformin and gabapentin therapy served as cases & Diabetic Neuropathy patients of comparable age & sex receiving only metformin and gabapentin therapy served as control. All patients were thoroughly examined and investigated for Fasting Blood Sugar, HbA1c, S. Zinc at 0, 4, 8 and 16 week, similarly baseline BEP was done in all patients. Serum Zinc levels were lower in Patients of Diabetic Polyneuropathy. Effect of Zinc supplementation on fasting blood glucose was extremely significant. Percentage change over baseline was 10.66% as compared to 7.58% in those not supplemented with zinc, similary Results for latency of BEAR of both ears were significant .
