Aim: To assess the serum cholesterol levels of the diabetes patients in the rural areas of the Sindh.
Study design: Prospective observational study
Place and duration of study: Department of Medicine, Muhammad Medical College Hospital, Mirpurkhas Sindh, Pakistan from 1st January 2020 to 31st December 2020.

Results: There were 368 (71.18%) males and 149 (28.82%) females. Moreover 223(43.13%) patients were aged from 51 to 60 years. Patients had 3 to 6 years of diabetic history (51.26%). Patients had glycemic value 151-200mg/dL (33.27%). One hundred and eighty nine patients had total cholesterol value 201-250 mg/dL. One hundred and seventy six patients were prescribed from Sulphonylurea with 34.04%, 205 patients were prescribed lovastatin (39.65%), 97 patients were prescribed rosuvastatin
Conclusion: The changes in the lipid profile levels of diabetic patients might occur at different ages along with the morbid condition such as diabetes mellitus and condition can be more complicated if not managed properly. The disruption in the serum lipid profile, total cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL, HDL and obesity cannot be ignored the condition is worse in developing countries like Pakistan.
