Abstract


ITNRODUCTION. The prevalence of cholelithiasis is higher in patients with diabetes than in general population. The aim of the study was the analysis of occurrence the cholilithiasis in aspect of sex, age, body mass index, types of diabetes, duration of carbohydrates metabolism disorders and current (average 24-hours blood glucose level) and distant (average HbA1c).
RESULTS. The higher percent of cholelithiasis was estimated in women, in patients 40 and over years old, with 1st stage of obesity - without increasing with obesity levels. The disease was more frequent in type 2 than in type 1 of diabetes - 15.5% vs. 0.8%, and at diabetes duration in range 6–10 years - 15.3%. In patients with cholelithiasis and diabetes comparing to patients without cholelithiasis there was similar current diabetes metabolic control, and higher percentage of HbA1c - 11.5% vs. 9.04%.
CONCLUSIONS. In patients with diabetes prevalence of cholelithiasis depends on: sex, age, body mass index, type of diabetes and distant diabetes metabolic control. There was no dependence with cholelithiasis and levels of obesity or with diration of the diabetes.
