Abstract:   (2477 Views)
Diabetes mellitus (DM), as one of the cumbersome challenges facing public health worldwide, is characterized by numerous chronic complications. Concerning major changes occurring in most organs of the body, this condition gives rise to early or late complications, so that the overall costs of healthcare in this respect have been mostly reported for hospitalization as well as treatment and care for the disease and its complications. Given the prevalence of DM and its complications and the fact that no surveys have been so far conducted on the prevalence of DM-related complications in Torbat Heydariyeh, Iran. This study aimed to reflect on DM-related complications in patients referred to the hospitals located in Torbat Heydariyeh, Iran, in 2018-2019. This cross-sectional study was performed on 250 medical records of patients with DM admitted to 9-Dey Education Hospital in this city. For this purpose, the demographic characteristics information, as well as the complications caused by DM, was extracted from the patients’ medical records. The data were further analyzed using the SPSS Statistics software 20 including descriptive and analytic methods. The study results suggested that the most frequent DM-related complication was observed for circulatory system diseases (41.5%) and the least frequent one was about neurotic disorders (4%), respectively. There was also a significant relationship between the type of complication and the variables of gender, age, marital status, and type of DM (p<0.05). Nevertheless, no significant difference was found between the variable of the type of complication and the variables of occupation, place of residence, and fasting blood sugar levels. Ultimately, it was concluded that providing patients and their families with appropriate training could help them control blood sugar levels, which could significantly reduce DM-related complications.
