Methods: The age, course, blood pressure, history of drink and smoke, relationship with DED were investigated in 126 DED patients of 320 diabetes mellitus.

Results: The prevalence of DED in male diabetic patients was 39.4% (126/320). It was found by the analysis of Logistic regression that the values of OR rise to 1.8467, 1.2614, 1.4508, 1.3212, 1.2065, 5.3464 (P < 0.01), along with adding of 5 years in course, 10 years in ages, 2% in HbA1C, 4 kPa in systolic blood pressure, positive history of smoking and drinking respectively.
