Introduction: Diabetes is associated with the development of many cardiovascular diseases (CVD). Diabetes impairs the utilization of lipids and lipoproteins which cause diabetes induced atherogenic dyslipidemia that, is one of the most important risk factor for the development of atherosclerosis in diabetic individuals. Objectives: The basic aim of the study was to analyse the lipid profile in diabetic and non-diabetic patients with ischemic heart disease. Material and methods: This cross sectional study was conducted in Holy Family Hospital, Rawalpindi during June 2019 to December 2019. The data was collected from 100 patients of both genders. The data were collected through randomly selected sampling technique. There were two groups of study one was suffering from diabetes and one was non diabetic patients. Results: The data were collected from 100 patients. The study subjects were divided: on the basis of health condition into normal, N group; non-diabetic and atherosclerotic, NA group; and diabetic and atherosclerotic, DA group. Conclusion: It is concluded that comparison of lipid profile in non-diabetic and diabetic atherosclerosis patients would enable us to maintain the health of patients by reducing cardiovascular risk.
