Syed Muhammad Hasan, Muhammad Bilal Azmi, Akhtar Ali Baloch, Fauzia Imtiaz.

Abstract
Objective: To relate the status of glycemic control with body mass index (BMI) and anthropometric measures of diabetic patients.
Methodology: The study was performed at National Institute of Diabetes and Endocrinology (NIDE), Dow University of Health Sciences, Ojha Campus, Karachi and include 245 diabetic patients. Glycemic control was measured in terms of glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c).
Results: Age range was 40-60 years. There was significant (p < 0.001) difference in body height, weight and BMI. HbA1c showed the highest set of value distribution with 7.5% or more with total mean of 9.13%. Marginal plot analysis of BMI validated that increase relative risk of disease with reference to BMI indicated the highest patient clustering with HbA1c levels was greater than 7.5% and more.
Conclusion: Increase in HbA1c was directly linked with increase in body weight and BMI in diabetic patients.

Key words: Anthropometric, body mass index, diabetic patients, glycemic, height, weight.
