Abstract:
Leptinemia is associated with obesity and obesity and hyperinsulinemia are considered as the main etiological factors for type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) among adult subjects. The present case-control study evaluated the dietary pattern and biochemical profile of newly diagnosed T2DM obese Omani adults as compared to their age, weight and gender matched control subjects. Two hundred Omani adults (100 obese adults newly diagnosed with T2DM and 100 healthy controls) were included in this study. Dietary intake, body mass index and biochemical measurements for fasting serum glucose, insulin, leptin and blood glycated hemoglobin levels were evaluated for all study participants. Subjects with T2DM showed significantly (p<0.05) higher daily intake of total fats, carbohydrates and energy as compared to controls. Leptinemia and hyperinsulinemia were common among obese diabetic adults as compared to controls. The mean fasting serum levels of glucose and glycated hemoglobin in obese diabetic subjects were significantly (p<0.05) higher than controls. Serum leptin level was found to be positively correlated with body mass index, serum insulin level and total energy intake in all the study subjects. Our results suggest that leptinemia is a risk factor for T2DM in obese Omani adults.
