Sana Aslam*, Ifrah Mumtaz and Misbah Naeem

ABSTRACT

Objective; To determine the frequency of patients doing self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) in cases with type II DM. Methodology: This was a cross sectional study, that was conducted during July to December 2018 at Mayo Hospital, Lahore. In this study, total 200 cases of type II DM enrolled. The SMBG was labeled as on basis of documentation of fasting and postprandial blood glucose values with date and time of blood glucose testing and any action taken if needed (e.g. increase in dose of oral hypoglycemic agents, change in oral hypoglycemic agents), after seeing the blood glucose values, for at least once per day over the last 6 weeks. Results: In this study there were total 200 cases out of which 110 (55%) were females and 90 (45%) males. The mean age and duration of type II DM were 45.31±7.13 year and 6.14±3.08 years respectively. In this study 58 (64.44%) out of 90 and 78 (70.91%) out of 110 females did SMBG with p= 0.74. There was no significant difference in terms of age groups with p= 0.94. There was significant association in terms of both residential status and education level where SMBG was more done in urban population and those with education level of more than graduation with p values of 0.01 and 0.001 respectively. Conclusion; SMBG is done in almost every 2/3rd of cases and it is significantly higher done in cases that are urban and have education level more than graduation.
