Noise is an environmental pollutant and in many occupational fields noise emerges as an occupational hazard. Over and above creating hearing problem, noise is found to affect other systems like cardiovascular system and metabolism. Some researchers noticed increased blood sugar level in subjects with history of noise exposure. So present study was aimed at finding out the prevalence of hyperglycemia in the employees of bell metal industries of Sarthebari, Assam. A total of 163 workers in the age group of 18-62 were included in the study. They had history of noise exposure for a duration varying from 1-21 yrs. After recording height, weight, pulse and blood pressure, the random blood sugar was measured and the variables were analyzed statistically. Using Pearson correlation coefficient age of the employees was not found to be strongly related with RBS and work duration was also not found to be strongly correlated with RBS. Using Z test of proportion in our study Z=-1.53341, it was concluded that there was no significant prevalence of hyperglycemia among the employees of bell metal industries of Sarthebari. Further studies are needed in this field and estimation of FBS and PPBS would be more relevant to comment on hyperglycemia.
