Changes in the walls of blood vessels cause a decrease in blood flow (perfusion) to the lower extremities which are marked by a decrease in the ankle-brachial index (ABI). The purpose of this study was to obtain an overview of ABI values in diabetes patients in the prolanis group at Puskesmas Poasia, Kendari City, Southeast Sulawesi. This study is a descriptive study, to get an overview of the ABI value in patients with DM who were registered as prolanis patients at Poasia Kendari health center as many as 14 people. The results of the research were obtained, namely: the average gender was 11 respondents, the average age of the respondents was 46-55 years old as many as 6 respondents, and the average length of suffering from the respondents was 0-2 years as many as 9 respondents. The results of the study obtained ABI values ??in 14 patients with Type II Diabetes Mellitus (DM type II), there are still many who fall into the normal category, namely 9 respondents (64.3%) and there are (35.7%) respondents who have abnormal ABI, namely in minor and moderate occlusion categories. Normal ABI in respondents is influenced by the average duration of diabetes mellitus is only a period of 5 years, this causes the ABI value in the normal range and not many have experienced disturbances.
