Qurrat-Ul-Ain Aslam, Tayyeba Salamat, Ruqiya Manzoor

Objective: The aim of this research is to know about the data of growth- onset diabetes and check the danger of attitudes and the surrounding aspects among healthy people who are visiting the health care centres in Islamabad.  

Methodology: This study was based on the sampling. This research was carried out in the primary health care centres in Islamabad, in 2020. 198 participants (healthy or patients from any disease other than diabetes) whose age was more than eighteen years and living in Islamabad were included in the research. One thing was common for all the participants that they were attending the study period regularly. ADA (American Diabetic Association) rules were used for the evaluation of data. SPSS version eleven software was used for the analysis of the data.

Results: The data and the information about the reasons, difficulties and signs were found missing. The routine of the daily food and the way of living life were found against the prescribed rules. 27% participants were fat, 11% participants were found overweight and 44% participants were found at high dangerous level.  38% participants were found at small danger level to acquire the growth- onset diabetes. Qualification, living in non-rural areas and male gender provided good data about the high sugar level. They were found with good marks on the dangerous scale because of bad eating habits and excessive rest.  

Conclusion: A large portion of the people coming to the care centres was found in danger to acquire the diabetes. The information about them was found missing. But male gender, qualification and living in the urban areas provided good knowledge. The participants prone to disease were required for further testing and knowledge of health about the growth- onset diabetes was in need for those zones.

Keywords: Data, dangerous factor, growth- onset diabetes, ADA.
