The aim of the present paper was to investigate the serum concentration of total phospholipids and distribution of the phospholipid classes in patients with diabetes mellitus type 2 and dyslipidemia. We analyzed the serum phospholipids in 28 newly diagnosed patients with diabetes type 2, of which 12 men and 16 postmenopausal women aged 43-70 years. Sex- and age-matched control group was formed from 27 apparently healthy subjects. The results showed a significantly higher level of total phospholipids in the patient group when compared with healthy subjects (p<0.001). The relative concentration of phosphatidil-choline was significantly higher, and percentages of all other phospholipid classes were significantly lower in the patient group. The obtained results suggest an altered metabolic control of phospholipids in patients with diabetes type 2 with dyslipidemia. Acta Medica Medianae 2012;51(3):13-17.
