              27 cases of diabetes were under observation. Among them 20 cases were diabetes (type II) according to the WHO Diagnostic  Criteria. There were 8 males and 14 females and the average was 62 years old.

Other cases had been suffering from old people's diseases. 2 cases were males and 1 case was female. Their average was 71 years old.
