Dr. Prajakta Pradhan*

ABSTRACT

India has the dubious distinction of being the „Diabetic Capital? of the world. WHO states that the prevalence of Diabetes is expected to rise to 79,441,000 by 2030 in India. A prospective hospital-based study was conducted in the Casualty department of Kaushalya Medical Foundation Trust Hospital, a tertiary care centre in Thane district. The study was carried out in 231 diabetic patients out of which140 patients were males and 91 were females. The Diabetic patients presented with a wide spectrum of complaints. Fever was the commonest symptom, followed by dyspnea. The other common presentations were unconsciousness, foot ulcer, chest pain, loose motions, fever, urinary complaints, hemiparesis, altered sensorium, abdominal swelling, fall, pain in lower limbs, haematemesis and melaena. Highest percent of deaths in the study occurred in patients presenting with dyspnoea and fever. The study was undertaken to understand and spread awareness about the causes necessitating diabetic patients to get admitted to the hospital and to study the clinical profile, find an association between presentation and final outcome of such patients. This study would be useful to calculate the burden on health care system and accordingly to plan the appropriate management strategy.
