Abstract EN

Objective : To evaluate diabetes care, outcomes and compliance with diabetes guidelines.

Design : A Retrospective Study.

Setting : Salmaniya Medical Complex, Endocrinology Clinics, Bahrain.

Method : Patients with type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (DM) were included in the study.

Patient’s personal characteristics, diabetic care and outcome measures were documented from January 2018 to December 2018.

Result: Three hundred seventy-seven records were reviewed; 232 (61.5%) were females and 211 (55.9 %) were below 60 years.

Glycated hemoglobin was measured in 265 (70.3 %), of which, 114 (30.2 %) had levels below 7 % and 86 (22.8 %) had levels above 8 %.

Two hundred twenty-eight (60.5 %) patients had their blood pressure checked at least twice per year; 143 (38 %) had their systolic and diastolic pressures controlled.

Kidney function tests ranged between 55 % and 88 %.

Ninety (23.9 %) patients had their weight measured and 86 (22.8 %) had their Body Mass Index measured.

Conclusion: The level of diabetes care for type-2 diabetic patients was suboptimal.

A multilevel action plan is crucial to improve healthcare providers’ compliance with the recommended diabetes guidelines.
