With the object of finding the rate of prevalence of diabetics in tubercular patients, 875 such patients serially admitted in a hospital were investigated by post-prandial blood sugar estimation on their admission. Sixty-six or 7.5 percent cases among them had blood sugar level more than 120 mg percent, but only 15 or 1.7 percent gave history of diabetes at the time of admission.
