Abstract:

The proportion of people aged over 60 years is growing faster than any other age group in almost every country. of the estimated 57 million global deaths in 2008, 36million (63%) were due to non-communicable diseases(NCDs). Diabetes mellitus (DM) refers to a group of common metabolic disorders that share the phenotype of hyperglycaemia. Type 2 DM is preceded by a period of impaired fasting glucose (IFG) or impaired glucose tolerance (IGT), and a number of lifestyle modifications and pharmacologic agents prevent or delay the onset of DM. Older people in developing countries have around three times the number of years lost to premature death from heart disease, stroke, and chronic lung disease. With this background current study was planned to find prevalence of diabetes in elderly rural population and also associated risk factors. This descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted over a period of one year among all the families registered in the field practice area of RHTC SRMS IMS at Bareilly, Uttar Pradesh including 263 persons aged 60 years or more. Rural areas were selected randomly and complete house to house survey and face-to-face interview were conducted. The prevalence of diabetes mellitus in rural was found to be 23.95%. Diabetes was found to have positive association with increasing age, better education, being businessman, daily consumption of oil, better socio-economic status and sedentary occupational physical activity.
