Diabetes is a chronic disease. Type 2 diabetes is the most common type of diabetes and it accounts for 90% of the cases. Due to the increased incidence of this disease and its complications, the rate of bleeding caused by blood disorders and hypertension in type II diabetic patients visiting Imam Ali hospital in Zahedan was investigated in the present study. The present cross-sectional study was conducted on 200 type 2 diabetes patients visiting Imam Ali hospital of Zahedan in 2016. Clinical and demographic information of eligible subjects was collected using a researcher-made questionnaire. Systolic blood pressure equal to or more than 13 mmHg and diastolic equal to or above 80mmHg was considered to be categorized as high blood pressure; collected data was analyzed through SPSS version 18 and T-test statistical tests and P<0.05 was considered as significance level. Of the 200 patients we studied, 121 patients were female and 79 patients were male. The mean age of examine patients turned out to be 47±8.54. Hypertension was observed in 37 of patients, including 41% of men and 34% of women. Hypercholesterolemia was observed in 59% of patients, hypertriglyceridemia in 64%, high LDL in 70%, and low HDL in 65% of patients. The results of the present study indicate high incidence of hypertension and lipids in newly diagnosed type 2 diabetic patients; thus, diagnostic and therapeutic measures must be taken to control these two risk factors in order to prevent long-term and cardiovascular complications in these patients. It is recommended to pay closer attention to primary prevention plan, lifestyle modification through providing a proper pattern of food intake, and increase physical activity.
