ABSTRACT

Diabetes is a major public health concern associated with huge economic burden in developing countries, According to Diabetes Atlas published by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), there were an estimated 40 million persons with diabetes in India in 2007 and this number is predicted to rise to almost 70 million people by 2025, the economic burden due to diabetes in India is amongst the highest in the world. This study aimed to assess the direct costs involved in treating long-term diabetic complications among hospitalized patients with type 2diabetes. A total of 253 patients were recognized and are divided into groups based on the presence of complications. Details on sociodemography, hospitalization, direct costs of all patient care were recorded. The data on expenditure was obtained from hospital bills. A comparison was made for estimating cost involved in treating pt with and without complications. Based on the results obtained the expenditure for hospital admissions was higher for patients with foot and cardiovascular complications and it was highest if they had presence of two complications. Hence this study emphasizes the importance of minimizing burden on the patients for achieving better outcome therapeutically as well as economically.

Keywords: Health care costs, Diabetes, Complications, Hospitalization, Economic burden.
