But the age specific male/ female ratio did not differ much from that of tuberculosis among general population. 3) The prevalence rate of pulmonary tuberculosis was higher among study group than among general population only in 4 th and 5 th decade age groups (14-15 %) (p<0.005). 4) Of all the pulmonary tuberculoses among diabetic inpatients about 80% was active and about half(52% ) of which showed AFB positive on sputum smear alone. 5) The prevalence rate of far advanced pulmonary tuberculosis was higher among the diabetics whose initial fasting blood sugar level was above 250 mg % (36.5%) than amon g those whose initial fasting blood sugar level was below 250 mg % (1 7. 2%) (p
