ABSTRACT

Objective: To determine frequency of glycemic control in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) visiting to National Institute of Cardiovascular Diseases, Karachi.

Study Design: Descriptive Cross-Sectional study

Place and Duration: This study was conducted at Department of Cardiology, National

Institute of Cardiovascular Diseases, Karachi, Pakistan for six months duration from 12th October 2019 to 11th April 2020.

Informed consent was taken after explaining the procedure, risks and benefits of the study. In our study, all the included patients were given the emergency treatment and their blood samples were sent to laboratory to assess the outcome variable i.e. glycemic control. All the data was analyzed by SPSS 24.0.

Results: Mean ± SD of age was 62.5±8.4 years. Out of 110 patients, 65 (59.1%) were male while 45 (40.9%) were female. Obesity was found in 41 (37.3%) patients. Glycemic control was noted in 20 (18.2%) patients.

Conclusion: It is to be concluded that less glycemic control was noted among coronary artery disease (CAD) patients with increasing prevalence of diabetes. Indicators of quality care (HbA1c & other complications) should be assessed regularly for better diabetes management.
