Study of Qualitative Digital and Palmar patterns in Type II Diabetes Mellitus Patients


The goal of this study was to compare Dermatoglyphic patterns in DM-II patients and controls in Western Maharashtra. A total of 400 bilateral rolled finger and palm prints (200 males, 200 females) were analysed and compared to a control population from western Maharashtra. Between diabetes patients (both sexes) and controls, there is a statistically significant difference in the prevalence of digital and palmar patterns, according to the study. The whorl pattern of diabetic female finger tips is significantly enlarged (p0.01). In diabetic males, the frequency of palmar patterns is considerably reduced in the right Th/I1 area (p0.05), hypothenar area (p0.01), and left hypothenar area (p0.0).
