INTRODUCTION: The aim of the present study was to retrospectively evaluate geriatric type 2 diabetic patients admitted to emergency services as a result of diabetes.
METHODS: All files of geriatric patients admitted to emergency services between January and August 2013 were analyzed. Patients admitted as a result of diabetes and related acute complications were included in the study.
RESULTS: Hypoglycemia was diagnosed in 28.2% (n=42) of patients, and hyperglycemic hyperosmolar state was found in 26.9% (n=40). Hyperglycemia, diabetic ketoacidosis, diabetic foot infection, and lactic acidosis were diagnosed in 20.1% (n=30), 16.1% (n=24), 6.7% (n=10), and 2% (n=3) of patients, respectively.
DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSION: Difficulties can occur in follow-up and treatment of diabetes mellitus in geriatric patients. Further comprehensive studies are needed on the topic.
