Abstract

Background: Measurement of increased gallbladder volume is necessary for the detection of pathology of gallbladder.

Objective: The purpose of the present study was to find out the difference between ultrasonographically measured gall bladder volume in fasting and post prandial states of type II diabetic patients and non-diabetic control subjects.

Methodology: This cross-sectional study, carried out department of Radiology and Imaging at Bangladesh Institute of Research and Rehabilitation in Diabetes, Endocrine and Metabolic Disorders (BIRDEM) Hospital, Dhaka, Bangladesh from June 2013 to July 2014. The type II diabetic patients were selected as group A and the healthy individual with age and sex matched were selected as group B. An ultrasonographic evaluation of fasting gallbladder volume and 2 hours after meal was done in all the subjects using a 3.5 MHz transducer. Information was recorded in preformed data collection sheet.

Results: There was statistically significant (p<0.001) difference of mean fasting gall bladder volume between diabetic and non-diabetic subjects. The mean postprandial gall bladder volume of type II diabetic patients was significantly higher than that of the non-diabetic controls. By using Karl-Pearson coefficients of correlation it was found that gallbladder enlargement in type II diabetics, was significantly correlated with body mass index (p= 0.05) and systolic blood pressure (p= 0.05).

Conclusions: Cholecystomegaly is found in type II diabetics in the present study to a significant degree which is also significantly correlated with body mass index and systolic blood pressure.
