Aim: To evaluate salivary albumin in insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) patients and to compare with the healthy nondiabetic control group. Study Design: The study consisted of 30 IDDM patients and 30 age- and sex-matched healthy controls. All the subjects were subjected to salivary albumin estimations. The salivary albumin estimations were done by bromocresol green (BCG) dye method, end point. All the estimations were performed using an AutoAnalyzer. Results: The results showed elevated levels of salivary albumin in the IDDM group compared to the healthy controls. Conclusion: The salivary albumin can be used to assess the metabolic status of the diabetic subjects since it showed increased levels compared to the healthy controls. Salivary parameters can act as adjuncts in assessing the overall metabolic status of the patient.
