The number of elderly patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus increases every year. As a result, health care providers are workload. Therefore, this study was to compare the effect of blood sugar control and to determine factors associated with blood sugar levels in patients with type 2 diabetes aged 60 years and over between subdistrict health promoting hospital (SHPH) and community hospital in Kantang District, Trang Province, Thailand. A retrospective comparative study was conducted by using a database from hospital and SHPH. The data were collected from October to September 2022. Data analysis was used Chi-square test, Fisher's Exact Test, Independent t-test, Wilcoxon rank sum test and Spearman's rank correlation coefficient. The results present 222 patients who received treatment in SHPH and 208 patients attending community hospital. Those patients who received treatment at community hospital had lower hemoglobin A1C (HbA1c) (p<0.001) and Fasting Blood Sugar (FBS)(p=0.0251) than those patients who received treatment at SHPH. In addition, the factors associated with HbA1C of patients who received treatment at SHPH included total cholesterol (p=0.0308), triglycerides (p=0.0017), estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) (p=0.0002), and FBS (p<0.001). Furthermore, patients who received treatment at community hospital found total cholesterol (p=0.0388), eGFR (p=0.0101), and FBS (p< 0.001) had correlated with HbA1C. This study indicated that the treatment process for controlling blood sugar levels among elderly at SHPH should be concerned and focused on effective strategies.
