Background: Nowadays study of dermatoglyphics has an extraordinary significance in legal and criminal explores. Additionally, its investigation is identified with some hereditary sicknesses has an enormous application. Diabetes Mellitus is the silent killer of humanity and general medical issue. Dermatoglyphics might be viably utilized as a screening methodology in future and may help in the early recognition of instances of diabetes mellitus.
Materials and Methods: In our study, total of 100 patients were selected from the out door patient department from the hospital, out 0f 100 patients 50 patients those are suffering from diabetes made the experimental group and the other those are having no systemic condition made the other group or the control group. The establishment of the connection between the two groups by examining the each group the fact of presence or absence of dermatoglyphic design. In this total finger ridge count, indian ink technique was usd for taking up the hand, along with total ridge count of finger, absolute finger ridge count, ridge count for distal as well as lateral deviation along with palmer frequency design computerised along with lateral deviation with design frequency of the c- line and angles, which represent the qualitative boundary.
Results: The result that has been obtained from our study reveals that the total finger count of the ridge along with ridge count of the finer absolute, along with a-b count of the ridge were found to be higher in all the groups of the patient but found to be insignificant statistically. Angle “atd” that is present over both the sides of the hand in the patient were found to be expanded in all the groups that involve both the experimental groups and the control group, but with an exception in males that too in left side, but still they differ on the right side that too significantly (p<0> with respect to the over all groups with an exception with loop were found to be increased significantly with p value i.e. p<0> Conclusion: By the results of our study we concluded that, there is expansion in the radial variety and absence was found in case of proximal variety and the designs of the c – line in case of diabetics were reduced when it is compared to the control group. Our study results demonstrated that dermatoglyphic abnormalities can be utilized as a device which act as analytic for predicting the chance for the development of the disease known as diabetes in future.

Keywords: Dermatoglyphics abnormalities ab ridge count atd angle, Axial triradii.
