A study was conducted among people with type 2 diabetes in Saudi Arabia to explore prevalence and factors associated with control of the disease, its related macro- and micro-vascular complications, and quality of life. The finding of this study showed that these outcomes are highly prevalent in Saudi Arabia, and modifiable lifestyle factors including healthy diet, regular physical activity, reducing sitting time, and maintaining healthy body weight can lower the risk. A risk scoring tool was developed for diabetes related complications, which will be useful for patients’ counselling and education.
