Comparative Study of the Fingerprint Pattern among Diabetic (Type 1) and Non-Diabetic Children in Koya City
Keywords:Dactyloscopy, Type 1 Diabetes, Fingerprints, Fingerprint patterns, Ridge
Dactyloscopy is a branch of Dermatoglyphics (investigate of epidermal ridges) which includes estimation and classification of unique finger impression patterns for detection. The whole unique finger impression patterns are laid down for all time for the third month of the intrauterine living and they continue unchanged throughout life.
This is, in addition, the period after every organ in the body is finalizing their progress. Consequently, a positive link of the dermatoglyphic character through dissimilar diseases like diabetes, mongolism, schizophrenia and leprosy have been correctly reported in the literature.
The aim of the study is to show a relationship among fingertip patterns between type 1 diabetes cases in comparison to controls together with children in Koya City. In this study, 16 type 1 diabetic subjects and 16 controls were selected from the children in the Koya city in Kurdistan region of Iraq and their fingerprints were taken by the ink method.
Overall the results showed that there is a significant difference in fingerprints between type 1 diabetes and controls in children. The print patterns, including whorls, arches, loops and suntypes were analysed for both cases. In conclusion, the findings of this study indicate possible markers for the use of dermatoglyphics in early diagnosis of type 1 diabetes in children.
