Abstract: Background: There are conflicting reports on Helicobacter pylori prevalence and its relationship to patients with diabetes mellitus type - 2 (T2DM). Aim: The current study was carried out to detect the sero-frequency of Helicobacter pylori among high HA1c and Type-2 diabetes mellitus patients in Khartoum. Methods: A total number of 50 plasma samples were collected randomly from uncontrolled DM patient's attending different hospitals in Khartoum, Sudan from January to March 2016 and 40 plasma samples were collected from healthy individuals as controls.
