Abstracts

Introduction: Type 2 diabetes is a public health problem, a group of metabolic disorders that affect different organs and tissues lasts throughout life and is characterized by hyperglycemia due to a delivery defect of insulin, which has an effect on the metabolism of carbohydrates, lipids, and proteins.

Objective: To determine the correlation between body mass index and biochemical parameters in people with and without type 2 diabetes.

Methodology: Quantitative, cross-sectional, observational, analytical, in the comprehensive primary health care center, in people with type 2 diabetes in mutual aid group (MAG) of 18 years or more, and one of their offsprings. Plasma levels of glucose, total cholesterol, Low Density Lipid, High Density Lipid, and triglycerides were determined. Pearson's r, linear regression equation, t-test, and P-value and 95% confidence intervals were calculated between body mass index and biochemical parameters.

Results: The sample consisted of 70 people with type 2 diabetes and 71 offspring of subjects with type 2 diabetes. No correlation or linear relationship between body mass index and measurements of glycemia, total cholesterol, Low Density Lipid, High Density Lipid, and triglycerides with P values ​​greater than .05.

Conclusion: In this sample, no association was found between body mass index and measured biochemical parameters.
