ABSTRACT

Diabetes mellitus type 2 (also known as type 2 diabetes) is a long term metabolic disorder that is characterized by high blood sugar, insulin resistance, and relative lack of insulin.[3] Common symptoms include increased thirst, frequent urination, and unexplained weight loss. Symptoms may also include increased hunger, feeling tired, and sores that do not heal.[4] To assess the prevalence of hypertension and diabetes and the status of known risk factors. The study was conduct between 2017 and 2018. The study design including study instruments and informed consent form, were approved by the IRB of the Moving Academy of Medicine and Biomedicine both from scientific and ethical angles. Altogether, the six tribal Padas (tribal hamlet) in this study consisted of 37 families, with a total population of 68 and women to men ratio of 0.94. Adults accounted for 52.5% of the population. Two-thirds of the adults (51/68), of which 53.4% (27/81) were women, participated in the study. All families were approached. Only one family of four adults refused to participate in the study. They were not included in the study. In this study, the overall prevalence of systolic hypertension was found to be 16% and 17.8% in women and men, respectively. Prevalence progressively increased with age and the trend of age versus hypertension was highly significant statistically in both sexes. Hypertension was present in more than half of the participants above 60 years of age. DBP showed a similar trend in our study performed in Telangana State.
