|Abstract:||This transverse, observational study of 119 elderly diabetics of both sexes enrolled in a diabetics program at a medium-complexity clinic of Brazil's national health system was carried out from September 2007 to August 2008, with a view to characterizing the participants according to the variables studied. It was approved by the Research Ethics Committee of the Federal University of Piauí. Data were calculated using the EPI-INFO program, version 6.04d. The chisquare test was used to analyze the association between variables. It was found that 11.8% of the subjects lived alone; and 33.6% had been diabetic for more than 15 years. Most were women (69.7%), aged between 60 and 69 (58.0%) and overweight (60.5%). The respective rates of high and very high risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD) were 28.8% and 45.8%. The risk for CVD was associated with the values of weight, BMI, waist circumference and male sex.|
