Effects of Some Selected Factors on Blood Glucose Level of the Diabetic Patients: Evidence from Rajshahi City of Bangladesh
Keywords:Diabetic mellitus, Type-I and Type-II diabetic, Blood glucose level, Systolic pressure and, Diastolic pressure.
This study presumes the existence of causal framework interlinking different predictor variables with the response variables. That is why it determines the risk and concerned factors, which affect blood sugar level of the diabetic patients either directly or indirectly or through making implied effect by the optional factors. Data have been collected from two diabetic diagnostic centers in Rajshahi City. The result implies that blood glucose level of both tablet and insulin users have positive and significant relation to systolic pressure, diastolic pressure and calorie intake. For both tablet and insulin users, body mass index (BMI) affects blood sugar most prominently through walking distance covered by the patients. The index, for instance, is found to be 69.74% and 58.82% for the tablet and insulin users, respectively. Thus controlling BMI through taking regulatory calorie intake, controlling blood pressure (both systolic and diastolic pressure) a patient could find himself or herself in the safe zone.
