Abstract:

The purpose for this study is to assess the socio-demographic and health related determinants of over weighted diabetic patients in Bangladesh. To fulfill this objective, chi square and logistic regression analysis have been performed using the data extracted from 300 diabetic patients attending Rajshahi Diabetes Association, Rajshahi, Bangladesh. The assessment of this study shows that 29.7% of all diabetic patients have over weight of which female diabetic patients (19.0%) are more over weighted than male diabetic patients (10.7%). Also, peoples have a higher risk to develop abdominal obesity and diabetes with increasing their age especially older age. The majority of over weighted diabetic patients (15.3%) is sleeping more than normal hours (>6 h) and 10.7% have over weight with high blood pressure. Poor control of diabetes is one of the main reasons to develop over weight. It has been found that age, sex, controlling diabetic through exercise, increasing diabetes because of food habit, low blood pressure and high blood pressure are significantly associated with the over weight of diabetic patients. Also, it is identified that age, sex, education, duration of sleeping, controlling diabetic through exercise, increasing diabetes because of food habit, low blood pressure, normal blood pressure and high blood pressure have significant effect on over weight.
