Download Article

Authors : Madhumati Varma


OBJECTIVE—The goal of this study was to estimate the prevalence of diabetes and complications of the number of people of all ages with diabetes those got attended in OPD of Diabetes of Hospital central Nampula.

RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS—Data on diabetes prevalence limited 24 patient randomly selected of OPD of central Hospital Nampula. Patients were taken information regarding Identification, history & physical examinations. There were used results of Investigations of hematological, biochemistry etc, Radiologic examination if needed, Monofilament test, Tunic fork, ophthalmoscope, blood pressure apparatus, Glucometer.

RESULTS— During evolution of patient of OPD of Diabetes in Central Hospital Nampula found, DM 1 was less than 15 years of age group and DM 2 start from age 31 and picks age 46 to 60 years. There was male sex had higher % of DM it also related to culture as male was more sedentary life style did manual work and women were used to do house work which taken physical work. There were profession which involved life style sedentary, high calories intake, rich in economy professors and student, Urbanization also was one factor which responsible for development of Diabetes. There were most common complication Diabetic Neuropathy and impotency but less common Diabetic Retinopathy and Nephropathy.

CONCLUSIONS—Which suggest improvement of facility of diagnosis various complication, education of patient availability of drugs, adherence of treatment, awareness of general population and professional regarding Diabetes mellitus in Nampula.
