Abstract: 

Objective: The objective of the study to investigate the correlation of vitamin D level with body mass index and waist circumference in diabetic population.
Patients and Methods: An observational cross-sectional study on 100 subjects (male=55 and female=45), age range 30-60 year, was performed. Subjects underwent physical examination and biochemical testing. Subjects included were newly diagnosed or previously diagnosed case of diabetes mellitus. Analysis was performed using SPSS Statistical package for windows (SPSS VERSION 20).
Results: Only 6% of the subjects had optimal level of vitamin D level and 67% of subjects were deficient. There were highly significant inverse association of waist circumference and body mass index (BMI) with vitamin D level (p-value 0.001). There were also inverse association of fasting blood glucose and HbA1C with vitamin D level (p-value 0.014 and <0.001 respectively) in diabetic population.
Conclusion: Our results suggest correlation of vitamin D level with body mass index and waist circumference in diabetic population.
