Type 2 diabetes, the most prevalent form of the disease, is often asymptomatic in its early stages and can remain undiagnosed for many years. Patients with diabetes are at increased risk of developing long-terms complications especially of the eyes, kidneys, nerves, heart, and blood vessels. Microvascular complications such as diabetic retinopathy (DR), diabetic nephropathy (DN), and diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN) are major causes of morbidity and deaths. Aim: This study was undertaken to study incidence of microvascular complications (Retinopathy, Nephropathy & Neuropathy) already present in the newly diagnosed patients of type 2 DM. Methodology: Out of 100 patients enrolled, 29% patients had neuropathy,4% patients had evidence of non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy and 4% had proliferative diabetic retinopathy and 7% of the patients already had evidence of diabetic nephropathy on diagnosis of diabetes. Thus it was seen that microvascular complications of diabetes was already present in many patients at time of diagnosis of diabetes. Hence it is suggested that early screening of complications of diabetes and its complications at the time of diagnosis of the disease can prevent further progression of the complications.
