Introduction: Cardiovascular disease (CVD) with its high prevalence is mainly responsible for the high mortality and morbidity in type 2 diabetic patients. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors in patients with type 2 diabetes. Materials and Methods: Clinical information for 752 type 2 diabetic patients was collected in a cross sectional survey. History and physical examination were recorded. Laboratory tests were done for all patients. Results: Data for a total of 752 patients (355 males and 397 females) of type 2 diabetes were analyzed. The mean age of patients was 52.7±10.5 years and the mean duration of first time diagnosis of diabetes was 7.9 ±6.4 years, 51.6% of patients had hypertension. The prevalences of overweight and obesity were 52.5% and 25.7% respectively. Lipid abnormalities were prevalent in a large numbers of our patients, 95.2% had total cholesterol > 200 mg/dL, 3.1% of patients had triglycerides > 150 mg/dl. The prevalences of low HDL-c and dense LDL were 86.9% and 65.8% respectively 73.5% of our patients had metabolic syndrome. HbA1C>7% was found in 75% of patients. Renal involvement was observed in our patients 21.5% of patients had microalbuminuria, 1.6% macroalbuminuria and 8.8% had chronic kidney disease. Conclusion: The high prevalence of CVD in our type 2 diabetic patients found demonstrate the need for more improvement in prevention and treatment of such patients.
