INTRODUCTION: The aim of the present study was to retrospectively evaluate geriatric type 2 diabetic patients admitted to emergency services as a result of diabetes.
METHODS: All files of geriatric patients admitted to emergency services between January and August 2013 were analyzed. Patients admitted as a result of diabetes and related acute complications were included in the study.
RESULTS: Hypoglycemia was diagnosed in 28.2% (n=42) of patients, and hyperglycemic hyperosmolar state was found in 26.9% (n=40). Hyperglycemia, diabetic ketoacidosis, diabetic foot infection, and lactic acidosis were diagnosed in 20.1% (n=30), 16.1% (n=24), 6.7% (n=10), and 2% (n=3) of patients, respectively.
DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSION: Difficulties can occur in follow-up and treatment of diabetes mellitus in geriatric patients. Further comprehensive studies are needed on the topic.

Keywords: Diabetes mellitus, geriatrics, hypoglycemia.

YÖNTEM ve GEREÇLER: Ocak-Ağustos 2013 tarihleri arasında acil servise başvuran tüm geriatrik hastaların dosyaları incelendi. Diyabet ve ilişkili akut komplikasyonlar sebebiyle başvuran hastalar çalışmaya alındı.
BULGULAR: Hastaların %28.2’sinde (n=42) hipoglisemi, %26.9’unda (n=40) hiperglisemik hiperosmolar durum saptandı. Hiperglisemi, diyabetik ketoasidoz, diyabetik ayak enfeksiyonu ve laktik asidoz sırasıyla %20.1 (n=30), %16.1 (n=24), %6.7 (n=10) ve %2 (n=3) tespit edildi.
TARTIŞMA ve SONUÇ: Geriatrik hastalarda diabetes mellitusun takip ve tedavisinde bazı zorluklar olabilir. Bu konuda daha kapsamlı çalışmalara ihtiyaç vardır.
