The web-based application system developed using Oracle 8 and ASP 3.0, for data management of diabetes patients, was used for epidemiological study and clinical analysis. Interactive, form based web pages were developed for querying the database online. This article describes four examples of application of this system for data analysis of the diabetes patients. Data was extracted from this database system with the help of the query system (SQL) and the study of inheritance pattern of diabetes mellitus in Western Indian population was done by analyzing the family history of diabetes patients. Also the correlation of blood glucose and serum cholesterol in type 2 diabetic patients was analysed by querying the database and generating graphs and report which gave the values of fasting glucose and cholesterol of the patients. The reports thus generated were analysed by statistical methods using SPSS software. Study of symptoms of diabetes and prevalence of diabetic complications such as hypertension, ischemic heart, and neuropathy was also done. Thus the application developed to store, update and manage the medical and clinical records of the diabetes patients to assist the health care providers, was also applied for population and clinical studies.
