This is a non-interventional, cross sectional, multicentric study in T2DM patients which will involve a single visit for study related procedures. This study will be conducted in approximately 5,000 patients at around 300 hospitals/primary care clinics across India. Approximately 18-20 patients per site will be enrolled. This study has been designed to evaluate diabetes related quality of life (DQoL), frequency and impact of hypoglycaemia in relation to HbA1c control and to assess disease modifying variables-BMI and BP in T2DM patients on oral / injectable anti-diabetic drugs with/without insulin therapy.
