Introduction. Global rates of childhood obesity have increased dramatically. Evidence suggests that exposure in utero to maternal obesity or gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) may contribute to these alarming trends (1–5).Children born to mothers with GDM or obesity during pregnancy have an increased likelihood of developing obesity and metabolic disorders . Overweight and obesity are also increasingly prevalent in people with type 1 diabetes and present clinical challenges regarding diabetes treatment and CVD risk factors (,). Therefore, MNT and DSMES that include an overall healthy eating plan in a format that results in an energy deficit, as well as a collaborative effort to achieve weight.

Interventions in Obesity & Diabetes 2/2 Interventions Obes Diabetes 2. Rao GHR, Nagendra HR () Holistic approaches for prevention of heart disease and diabetes. J . The incidence of type 2 diabetes mellitus has, like that of obesity, increased significantly in the past decade and is reaching epidemic proportions in the developed world. Approximately 16 million people in the United States have type 2 diabetes, .

Type 2 diabetes normally results from the progressive development of insulin resistance (eg, in liver and muscle cells) and the subsequent dysfunction of pancreatic beta cells. The fact that about 80% of people with type 2 diabetes are obese highlights a clear association between type 2 diabetes and obesity — abdominal obesity in particular. This cohort represents, 15,, people, ∼5 million with obesity and ∼1 million with diabetes. With expanded health care provision in the U.S., the potential incremental health care costs of diabetes alone for these individuals approximates $9 billion/year, or $9, per new diabetes patient/year (11).

The epidemic of obesity is driving the diabetes epidemic to alarming levels and primary care is becoming an important setting for obesity management in T2DM in by: 6. Background and Purpose: Obesity and Diabetes Mellitus type two (DMII) have a known association.

Yet, the socio-demographic predictors of obesity in special populations such as people who have DMII remain unclear. The purpose of this study was to determine the socio-demographic predictors of obesity among adults who have DMII.

This is because SPIDDM includes patients with any age of onset of diabetes. Currently, million adults 18 and older in the United States have diabetes (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC], ).The total prevalence of diabetes is projected to increase to 25% to 28% of the U.S.

Type 2 diabetes is far more common than type 1 diabetes, accounting for about 90 percent of all cases. The frequency of type 2 diabetes varies greatly within and between countries and is increasing throughout the world.

Most patients with type 2 diabetes are adults, often older adults, but it can also occur in children. Currently in the United States about 97 million adults are considered obese, accounting for about 33% of the American adult population (compared to % in ).

Obesity, defined as a body mass index of or higher, is accountable for 44% of the diabetes, 23% of the ischemic heart disease and between 7% and 41% of certain cancers. In Brief Incriteria for the diagnosis of diabetes were selected based on levels of glycemia on the oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) that were associated with the subsequent development of retinopapthy.

The epidemics of obesity and diabetes mellitus are associated with an increased incidence of both atrial fibrillation (AF), the most common sustained arrhythmia in adults, and sudden cardiac death (SCD). Obesity and DM are known to have adverse effects on cardiac structure and function.

The pathologic mechanisms are thought to involve cardiac tissue remodeling. Authors: Pandey A, Patel KV, Bahnson JL, et al., on behalf of the Look AHEAD Research Group.
