1. The extent of haemoglobin glycosylation from 60 camels has been determined (4.39%) in blood samples drawn during winter.


2. Phosphate (9.45 mg/dl), DPG (2.9 μmol/ml) and glucose (138 mg/dl) levels were also recorded.


3. In addition the P50" role="presentation" style="display: inline-block; line-height: normal; font-size: 16.2px; word-spacing: normal; overflow-wrap: normal; white-space: nowrap; float: none; direction: ltr; max-width: none; max-height: none; min-width: 0px; min-height: 0px; border-width: 0px; border-style: initial; position: relative;">P50 at pH 7.4 was measured (22.8 Torrs).


4. The data obtained compared with human blood levels and with levels reported for camels during summer sampling.


5. Despite the fact that camels have higher blood glucose levels than humans, the extent of glycosylation is much less in camel blood than in human blood.
