Diabetes mellitus: the leading cause of haemodialysis in Jordan
AbstractThis study aimed to define the role of diabetes mellitus as a cause of end-stage renal disease requiring haemodialysis in Jordan, and to compare diabetic and nondiabetic patients. All patients on haemodialysis in Jordan at the time of the survey in 2003 [n = 1711] were personally interviewed and additional data were obtained from medical records. Diabetes mellitus was the most common cause of end-stage renal disease [29.2% of cases]. The mean age of patients was higher in diabetics [57.5 years, standard deviation [SD] 12.3] than nondiabetics [45.4 years, SD 17.1]. Duration on haemodialysis was significantly shorter in diabetics compared to nondiabetic patients
