dc.description.abstract In order to evaluate the occurrence of diabetes mellitus in Lebanon, 8,050 cases were studied and divided into two samples; the first one was formed by external patients applying to a laboratory for biological tests and the second one was evaluated retrospectively on patients records hospitalized between the year 1970 and 1985. The prevalence evaluated in the hospital environment was 5.0% and the incidence varied from 1.5 to 1.7% according to the different samples; these values were similar to the international average results. en_US
