Abstract:   (4654 Views)
Background: Hypertension and dyslipidemia are common in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. The high prevalence of cardiovascular disease in diabetic patients is, in part, related to these two risk factors. This study was performed to determine the prevalence of hypertension and dyslipidemia in newly diagnosed patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus in Isfahan.
Methods : In this cross – sectional study during 2001 – 2003, 310 newly diagnosed type 2 diabetic patients, in Isfahan endocrine and metabolism research center, were studied. Height, weight, blood pressure, Plasma lipid and lipoproteins, and HbA1c were determined for all subjects.
Results: Mean age at presentation was 489.83 years, and mean BMI was 28.44.62 Kg/m2. Hypertension was present in 32.9%, hypercholesterolaemia in 61.3%, hypertriglyceridaemia in 61.6%, high LDL in 77.3%, and low HDL in 67.8% of these patietns. The mean systolic and diastolic blood pressure were 119.0816.59 and 70.0214.02mmHg, respectively. The mean for total cholestrol was 216.1043.65, for triglyceride 207.46105.67, for LDL 124.7331.45, and for HDL 43.119.29 mg/dl.
Conclusion: Hypertension and dyslipidemia are common in newly diagnosed type 2 diabetic patients. This fact demonstrates the importance of early interventions for proper diagnosis and treatment of these two risk factors in diabetic patients.
