Abstract
Diagnosis and management of chronic complications is very important in diabetes mellitus. In asymptomatic patients, routine screening for chronic diabetic complications is recommended. If not recognized and if preventive care is not implemented, patients are at risk of damage to major organ systems. Tests for diabetic complications vary depending on the type of complications. Some tests require skilled workers and advanced facilities. Many simple screening tests for complications can also be carried out in outpatient clinics. Performing screening tests for complications in outpatient clinics could contribute to timely diagnosis and management of diabetic complications.
Key Words: Ambulatory care facilities, Diabetes mellitus, Outpatient clinics
