Abstract

Objective: The present study aimed to determine the frequency of newly diagnosed diabetes in Hemorrhagic stroke patients presenting to a tertiary care hospital in Peshawar.

Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted at the Department of Medicine, Lady Reading Hospital, Peshawar, for six months. A total of 210 hemorrhagic stroke patients were recruited. Patient history was obtained following detailed clinical examination and necessary tests such as computerized tomography (CT) brain, Glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c). The data were recorded using a structured questionnaire and analyzed using SPSS version 22.0.

Results: Out of the total, there were 66.70% males and 33.30% females, with a mean age of 55.90 ± 9.28 years. 53.3% were hypertensive, and only 27.60% had active smoking status. We found 63 (30.0%) new cases of diabetes mellitus. The most common risk factors among the enrolled newly diagnosed diabetic subjects were family history of diabetes, hypertension, and BMI (P<0.05).

Conclusion: It is concluded that newly diagnosed diabetes mellitus is fairly common in hemorrhagic stroke patients. Therefore, it is recommended that early screening of diabetes mellitus will benefit the patients in terms of good prognosis, reduced morbidity, and mortality.
