AbstractBackground: Diabetes is a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide and it contributes substantially to healthcare costs. The present study was conducted to assess cardiovascular risk factors in diabetes patients.
Materials & Methods: 86 type II diabetic patients of both genders. In all the patients, biochemical and hematological profile was obtained. Various cardiovascular risk factors were recorded.
Results: Out of 86 patients, males were 56 and females were 30. Common risk factors in diabetes patients were coronary heart disease in 12, peripheral heart disease in 5, stroke in 4 patients, retinopathy in 2 and nephropathy in 3 patients. The difference was significant (P< 0.05).
Conclusion: Common risk factors in diabetes patients were coronary heart disease, peripheral heart disease, stroke, retinopathy and nephropathy.
