Abstract
Objective: The main objective of this study is to see levels of serum uric acid in patients having impaired
glucose tolerance as compared to normal glucose tolerant individuals.
Patients and Methods: This was prospective study, conducted at Department of Medicine and Department
of Pathology, Indus Medical College Hospital, Tando Muhammad Khan for the period of 8 months (March
2019 to October 2019). A total of 140 patients were included in this study. An oral glucose test was
performed with load of 75g glucose in patients having impaired glucose in fasting. Both normal glucose
tolerance and impaired glucose tolerance individuals were evaluated for their serum uric acid level. Serum
glucose levels and serum uric acid levels were performed on COBAS C-111 Chemistry Analyzer ensuring
procedures of quality control. Data was entered and analyzed using SPSS 21.0.
Results: In patients having impaired glucose tolerance, the frequency of hyperuricemia was 62.35%. Analysis
of both groups (patients with normal glucose tolerance and glucose intolerance), association was strong with
p-value of <0.001.
Conclusion: Majority of patients with impaired glucose tolerance showed hyperuricemia as compared to
individuals with normal glucose tolerance. Hyperuricemia should be kept in routine investigation in patients
with impaired glucose tolerance as it can reduce the risk of secondary complications of hyperuricemia in
patients with pre-diabetes.

Key words: Uric acid, Glucose tolerance test, Impaired fasting glucose, pre-diabetes
