ABSTRACT
Ignorance, apathy, desire to get free advice, investigation and treatment is prevalent in diabetics. Most diabetics (69.63%) are uncontrolled whether on diet, single oral drug or combination of oral drugs or insulin. Ischemic heart disease was commonest complication. Neuritis was present in the one fourth of the followed up cases and was more prevalent in uncontrolled cases. Hypertension increases with the duration of diabetes and was twice more prevalent after duration of more than 5 years. Eye changes were present in about 50% of the people examined. Abnormality increases with the duration of diabetes.
