Diabetes mellitus (DM) complications are related to hyperglycemia, hypertension, smoking and lipids.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the determinants of metabolic and blood pressure levels in type 2 diabetes.
606 type 2 diabetes patients, outpatient Endocrine clinic, tertiary hospital, consecutively included between 2012-2014. Medical history, complete examination and laboratory evaluation performed (HbA1c, lipids, glomerular filtration rate -eGFR- and urinary albumin excretion-UAE). Therapeutic targets defined according to American Diabetes Association: HbA1c <7% (<8% if comorbidities); blood pressure <140/90 mmHg, total cholesterol (TC) <200 mg/dL, HDL adjusted for gender and triglycerides (TG) <150 mg/dL. Approved by ethics committee (nº 140073); statistical analysis PASW 20.0.
Two thirds of type 2 diabetes outpatients were above the recommended glycemic targets; obesity in women and black skin color were the main determinants for these findings.
