Association of Type 2 Diabetes Risk with Some Anthropometric Measurements in Obese Adults
Keywords:Obesity, Type 2 Diabetes, FINDRISK
Type 2 diabetes can be defined as an insidious disease that can last for years without symptoms. Disease In type 2 diabetes, insulin resistance and insulin secretion deformation are predominant and account for about 90-95% of all diabetics (5). The major disadvantage of delayed diagnosis is the increased risk of complications. The management of risk factors and risk factors that can be considered as a finding can prevent the disease or keep it uncomplicated (6). A total of 95 obese women adults with a mean age of 33.65 ± 1.62 years were included in this study. All cases were women. The Finnish Type-2 DM Risk Scale (FINRISK) was used to determine the risk of type 2 diabetes. FINDRISK (diabetes risks) scoring results of the participants are given in Table 2. According to this distribution, 15.8% of the participants were low risk, 26.3% were mild risk, 28.4% were medium risk, 13.7% were high risk and 15.8% were carries a very high risk. When body weight and risk scoring were evaluated, body weight was found to be statistically significant between the low-risk group and the high-risk group and the low-risk group and the medium-risk groups (<0.001). The difference between BMI values between low risk group and medium risk group, low risk group and mild risk group and between high risk and very high risk groups were found to be statistically significant (<0.001). No statistical significance was found between height and body fat percentage (%) values. The difference between waist circumference, hip circumference and waist / hip ratio values between low risk group and medium risk group, between low risk group and high risk group, and between mild risk and high risk groups were statistically significant (<0.001).
