Abstract : Diabetes mellitus is a chronic disease that causes serious health complications including renal failure, heart disease, stroke and blindness. In Myanmar, the overall prevalence of diabetes mellitus was 12.6% of females and 11.5% of males. Type 2 diabetes mellitus patients had been known to have a hypercoagulable state and hypofibrinolysis. The coagulation profile, glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) were determined in 187 patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (44 males, 143 females, mean age 55±11 years) attending the diabetic clinic of Outpatient Department of Yangon General Hospital. In these patients, prothrombin time (PT) (12.2±1.4 sec), activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT) (32.2±4.7 sec), thrombin time (TT) (18.1±2.6 sec) were within normal ranges. One hundred and two (55%) patients have increased in fibrinogen concentration (4.2±1.3 g/l) just exceeded the upper limit (2-4 g/l). Fibrinogen concentration was significantly higher in female (4.4±1.2 g/l) than in male (4.0±1.3 g/l) (p<0.001). In diabetic patients with HbA1c levels more than 6.4%, mean fibrinogen concentration and TT were significantly increased ie., 4.4±1.3 g/l and 18.9±2.7 sec, respectively. Plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) was measured in 77 diabetic patients with increased fibrinogen levels by using Human PAI-1 ELISA Kit. Forty-nine (64%) had PAI-1 level more than 50 ng/ml (references). PAI-1 level had positive correlation (r=0.29) with fibrinogen concentration in type 2 diabetes mellitus patients. The findings on coagulation status and fibrinolytic activity of type 2 diabetes mellitus patients would be beneficial for management of diabetic patients with thrombotic complications.
