Diabetes is a chronic metabolic disease characterized by elevated levels of blood glucose (or blood sugar). About 90% of people with diabetes around the world have type II diabetes. It is the main global health issue and burden as well with serious health complications including heart disease, blindness, kidney failure, and lower extremity amputations. In middle- and low-income countries, the prevalence of diabetes has been rising more rapidly and needs great attention. The data from such cases has been considered as recurrent event data and the correlation between events should be taken into account in the analysis. Thus, the aim of the study was to identify risk factors for recurrence of diabetic patients recovery time in Benishangul-Gumuz hospitals (Assosa, Pawi and Wonbera hospital), Ethiopia. A retrospective study has been applied to obtain data on the recurrence of a diabetic patient’s recovery time in Benishangul-Gumuz hospitals, Ethiopia, from September 1, 2019 to September 1, 2021. Kaplan-Meier plot (s) and Log-rank test were used for comparison of patients recovery time from diabetes; Standard Cox-PH and Shared Frailty model were used to identify factors significantly affect the recovery time of diabetic patients, using R version 4.1.1 for data analysis. Of the total diabetic patients in this study, 61.87% experienced recurrence of diabetic. The estimated median recovery time of diabetic patient’s was 6 months. The Shared Log-normal Frailty model was chosen to be best fit for this data set, based on Likelihood Cross-Validation value. Family history, other medical history and Systolic Blood Pressure of patients were significantly affected the recovery time of diabetic patient’s.
