Title: Obesity and diabetes interconnected pathologies


Due to the high prevalence of type 2 diabetes mellitus, it has become a global health problem. Currently, the involvement of obesity is recognized as the most important risk factor for its development, taking into account that even in patients with normal weight, a high percentage of body fat can be found. Changes in dietary hygienic habits are interventions aimed at prevention and treatment. The choice of pharmacological treatment should take into account the control of the muscle/fat ratio in the control of body weight. Bariatric surgery is indicated in patients with a BMI > 35 kg/m2 with associated risk factors, highlighting the partial remission that occurs after the procedure, with long-term studies of its beneficial effect being necessary. Due to the importance of these pathologies, the subject is reviewed.
