Epidemiology and clinical features of diabetes as assessed in a series of 466 consecutive inpatients in ivory coast


, : Epidemiology and clinical features of diabetes as assessed in a series of 466 consecutive inpatients in ivory coast. Revue Francaise d'Endocrinologie Clinique Nutrition et Metabolisme 27(6): 579-588

Formerly considered as being a rare condition in Africa, the diabetes reaches actually a prevalence as high as 7.05% in this series, with 65.4% male patients, about 70% of all diabetics being of poor social-economic level. A satisfactory metabolic balance is only rarely attained (fasting glycemia is higher than 2 g/l in 68.6% of patients) and most usually is precarious, thus representing 45.3% of all causes of hospitalization. Complications are frequent and often severe, coma accounting for 31,8% of mortality in Ivorian diabetic inpatients.
