Background : Diabetes is a chronic and worldwide common disease. This disease has many physical chronic complications. The aim of this study was to evaluate chronic complications of type 2 diabetes in the patients hospitalized in Shohada Ashayer hospital because of lack of control of plasma glucose with oral drugs. Materials and Methods: This retrospective cross sectional study was carried out on the patients hospitalized because of lack of control of plasma glucose by oral drugs in 2009-2010. The required data were gathered using a questionnaire. The collected data were analyzed by SPSS software and chi-square and Fisher's exact test. P value <0.05 was statistically regarded significant. Results: Studied subjects were 299 patients, of them 177 were female. The mean age of the patients was 58.6±14.7 years. Cardiovascular diseases (41.5%) and retinopathy (37.4%) were the most frequent complications. There was a significant relation between retinopathy and nephropathy, and the duration of the disease. Conclusion: Considering the high prevalence of cardiovascular complications in the patients and the lack of a routine method for evaluation of these complications in the diabetic patients, designing a plan for periodic evaluation of these patients is suggested.
