Diabetes is a chronic disease, leading to many complications. Therefore the aim of this study was to determine the prevalence ofdiabetic complications and its associated factors. To provide evidence for this conjecture, Institution-based cross-sectional study was conducted. Samples were chosen by systematic sampling technique. Data were collected by pretested questionnaire and document review; data were entered and analyzed by using SPSS version 20. Among 344 type 2 diabetes patients, more than half (53.5%) of participants had major DM complications. Among major DM complications were diabetic retinopathy, diabetic foot ulcer and diabetic nephropathy with a prevalence of 25.5%, 21.2% and 11.4% respectively. In multiple logistic regressions Ages, duration of DM and drug regimen were significantly associated with DM complications. Prevalence of diabetes mellitus complication among the type 2 DM patient is high in study area. Therefore, the health care provider should strength early detection and treatment DM client.
