Abstract

Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is a global epidemic problem. Obesity is the single most important contributor to insulin resistance. Management of diabetes requires lifestyle modification (eg. dietary changes and physical activity) and adherence to other healthful behaviors, such as medication adherence, and timely medical care. This is a cross sectional retrospective cum prospective study of patients which included all adult type 2 DM patients who were registered in the Aseer diabetic center, Abha, Aseer Region, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. This study was conducted from July, 2012 to October 2013.As a therapeutic outcome the HbA1c target was not achieved in this group of patients. In all the four visits the mean target value for Glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) was found to be above 9% and there is no significance difference in reduction of HbA1c after treatment. There is no significance difference or improvement in the lipid profile except total cholesterol and VLDL among this group of patients. Only (31.88%) of the patients was following SMBG. Patients not taking medications in proper time as prescribed were about (30.35%). Forget fullness was the main reason for not taking the medication on time. Increased duration of diabetes and obesity was associated with higher incidence of Hyperglycemia and dyslipidemia. Lack of awareness and poor compliance to therapeutic management created huge burden on healthcare system in the kingdom. Patient education and awareness programs should be done to improve the present situation.
