HbA1c test and serum electrolytes were assessed in both diabetic patients and controls. Results: Poor glycemic control was observed among 84% of diabetic patients with a highly significant difference in HbA1c level between diabetic patients and healthy controls (p<0.001). There was a significant association between hypernatremia and diabetic patients (p<0.001).
