Diabetes Mellitus is one of the common diseases leading to dialysis. In a cohort study, diabetic dialysis patients were compared with non-diabetic dialysis patients for one year about age, sex, cause and times of admission and rate of mortality. The study was done on 101 patients. At the end of the study, 88 patients remained. Results were interprected by T-test and chi-square statistical analyses and signified with P value less than 5 percent. Results: Diabetes was the cause of 17.8 percent of renal failure in 101 patients. The mean age of diabetics was greater than non-diabetics (P=0.02). Mortality of diabetics in one year was 20 percent, similar to non-diabetics. Infection (chills and fever) was the most common cause of admission in diabetics (33 percent) and non-diabetics (25 percent) with no significant difference. Conclusion: Mortality and morbidity between diabetic and non-diabetic dialysis patients had no significant difference.
