Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is It is published monthly.

Aim: Colonoscopy is the established standard method for the evaluation of the colon. It has been reported that diabetes was associated with poor bowel cleansing and colorectal cancer in some studies. We aimed to evaluate the bowel preparation quality of type 2 diabetic and non-diabetic patients.
Material and Methods: I62 diabetic and 65 non-diabetic patients were enrolled in this study and colon preparation quality was evaluated for each segment of colon (right, transverse and left) and total score was obtained according to Boston Bowel Preparation scale.
Results: The successful bowel preparation rates were 64.5% in the diabetics and 75.4% in the non-diabetics, which wasn’t statistically significant. Cecal intubation rate was 80.6% in the diabetics, 90.8% in the non-diabetics and mean cecal intubation time was 7.78 min in diabetics, 8.9 min in non-diabetics. There were no significant differences in terms of cecal intubation time, cecal intubation rate and polyp detection rates between groups. We also found that bowel cleansing of right colon and transverse colon in the non-diabetics was superior to diabetics.
Conclusion: Diabetes isn’t a negative factor for detection of colonic polyps and isn’t associated with inadequate bowel cleansing, but it associated with poor bowel cleansing in right and transverse colon, so physicians must be further careful for the possibility of obscure lesions of right and transverse colon in diabetic patients.

Keywords: Bowel cleansing; constipation; diarrhea; diabetes mellitus
