Abstract

Obesity is rare in insulin-dependent type 1 diabetes mellitus, but is common in type 2, non-insulin-dependent, diabetes mellitus (DM). About 85% of diabetics can be classified as type 2, and of these an average of 70% are overweight, ranging from a low of 50% to a high of 90%, depending on age, gender, and race (1).
