A prospective, Cross sectional observational study conducted in 200 Type2 diabetes patients attending outpatient department (OPD) of endocrinology. The objective was to assess various targets achieved according to ADA criteria, quality of life and quality of care. The study showed that approximately71% of our patients achieved HBAIc target. Only 17.5% achieved blood pressure target and 66.6% of patients achieved LDL target. Our study showed that quality of care ranges from 48.5% for foot examination to 100% for HBA1c estimation. The mean score for Physical Component Score (PCS) and Mental Component Score (MCS) were both below 50. Our study shows that majority of type 2 diabetes patients treated at tertiary care hospital achieved target glycemic control and LDL control, but failed to achieve Blood pressure targets. Quality of care was poor for indicators like foot examination and quality of life scores were poor among our patients.
