Introduction: Diabetes mellitus is one of the commonest endocrine disorder with multiple organ dysfunction as its complication .The early detection of atherosclerotic changes in the pre diabetic state would help us to take measures to prevent overt complication in later part of life. Aim: To study the association of carotid intima media thickness in individuals with impaired fasting glucose. Material and Method: A prospective study,a total of 30 patient and equally matched control were taken from patient attending at Medicine OPD for a period of one year. Routine lab investigation, lipid profile and B-mode Ultra sonography of the carotid intima media thickness of the selected cases as well as the control groups were done, thickening of the Intima-Media C omplex greater than 0.8mm is considered abnormal, and represents the earliest changes of atherosclerotic disease. Result: 18 individuals from cases and 5 individuals from control have significant increase in thickness of the common carotid intima-media thickness i.e. Ã¢Â‰Â¥0.8mm.
