Objectives: The objective of the study was to assess the salivary alpha amylase level in diabetic patient as well as normal individuals using spectrophotometry method.
Materials and methods: The present study was conducted among 140 subjects of 35-60yrs of age. The Subjects with diabetes mellitus based on inclusion and exclusion criteria and normal subjects were selected. And the saliva sample was collected from the subjects and salivary alpha amylase level was assessed using spectrophotometry method.
Results: The Results of the salivary alpha amylase level in diabetes mellitus group was 2631.73 +77.17 μ/l and in normal group it was 1634.6+44.17 μ/l.
Conclusion: The results of the present study showed significant increase in the salivary alpha amylase levels in diabetes mellitus group, as compared to normal group. Further studies has to be done with the larger sample size to know the exact range of salivary alpha amylase in normal subjects as well as in diabetes mellitus subjects.
