Triglyceride and Glucose Index as a Marker on Severity of Ischemic Stroke

Mourice Aashin | Dr Archana Bhat

Abstract: Background: Triglyceride and glucose (TyG) index a simple tool to assess the severity of stroke. Aims and objectives: To understand the role of triglyceride - glucose index as a marker in determining the neurological outcome. Material and methods: A cross - sectional observational study was conducted amongst the patients with ischemic stroke. The patients initial NIHSS was calculated within 24 hours of arrival of the patient. Fasting blood glucose levels and Triglyceride levels were sent and the TyG index was calculated. The results were then compared. Results: A total of 106 subjects were studied. After a doing a ROC analysis the cut - off for TyG Index was found to be 8.4937. Correlation of TyG with NIHSS was found to be statistically significant with p value of 0.0001 with a correlation co efficient of r=0.758. Conclusion: Higher TyG index may be used as a simple tool to risk stratify patients with ischemic stroke.
