There is rapid increase in the incidence of Diabetes Mellitus (DM) in India, as in other countries. Diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which the body’s ability to produce or respond to the hormone insulin is impaired, resulting in abnormal metabolism of carbohydrates and elevated levels of glucose in the blood, it also have severe long term complications like retinopathy, neuropathy, nephropathy, it also have increased evidence of cardiovascular diseases. The Glycated haemoglobin levels should be monitored for every 3 months to see if their levels are staying within range.
This study is a prospective observational study in which the diabetic patient was observed for symptoms, social history, medication, family history, and other clinical conditions. The study duration was of 1 year from 1st January 2020 to 1st January 2021. The evidence indicate there is increase range of HbA1C levels in majority of patients due to which chances for complications increase and only few achieve the recommended Glycemic control from the treatment. All of these issues are discussed in brief.
