Objective: The common type of diabetes is Type-2 DM (Diabetes Mellitus). This problem normally occurs after 40 years of age. In most of the Asian region, there is high prevalence of the risk factors and in combination with this, there is also unawareness about Diabetes Mellitus and perception lack about this particular complication. The objective of this research work was to evaluate different prevalent risk factors both modifiable and non-modifiable of Type-2 Diabetes Mellitus and to provide an estimation of the strength of relationship of these particular factors and the prevalence of this complication. Methodology: This research work was carried out at Nishter Hospital Multan. We used a Performa to gather the data from the patients and healthy controls. A sum of 300 patients of Type-2 Diabetes Mellitus and 600 healthy controls were the participants of this research work. Result: Total 54.330% patients were present in the age group of 41 to 50 years. Approximately 69.660% patients were men and 30.340% patients were females. We found a statistically significant association between the Type-2 Diabetes Mellitus and modifiable risk factors, whereas there was no association between non-modifiable risk factors like age and gender with the Type- Diabetes Mellitus. Conclusion: Type-2 Diabetes Mellitus is a disease with many risk factors. It is chronic in nature. Keywords: Chronic, Diabetes Mellitus, Diabetes, Type-2, Risk Factors, Modifiable.
