Introduction: India currently faces an uncertain future in relation to the potential burden that diabetes may impose upon the country. Many influences affect the prevalence of disease throughout a country, and identification of those risk factors is necessary to facilitate change when facing health challenges Methodology: In this study, Deaths due to complications of Diabetes formed the study subjects. Totally 200 deaths for the last 10 years were selected by non-probability purposive random sampling technique Results: Mean serum creatinine of >2 mg/dl was found in patients with infections, liver diseases and with multiple causes of death apart from patients with CKD. Also, patients with DKA had mean serum creatinine of 1.6 mg/dl. Mean Sr. Creatinine (mg/dl) in CKD and other causes was 5.90 and 2.69 respectively Conclusion: Mean RBS was significantly higher in patients with DKA, IHD and infections.
