“…Despite the fact that overweight and obesity are important predictors of morbidity and mortality among both the general population and people who have diabetes, the data regarding BMI reveals that the prevalence of these conditions is particularly high among the study participants (81%). It is important to note, however, that these findings differ from those reported by Lisbôa et al 22 . Furthermore, based on the WC data, the majority of the group (93%) were at high or very high risk of metabolic complications associated with obesity, corroborating the findings of Supp 23 .…”

O comprometimento ateroesclerótico das artérias coronarianas, dos membros inferiores e das cerebrais é comum nos pacientes com diabetes do tipo 2, constituindo-se a principal causa de morte.…”

“…The higher prevalence can be explained by the association between diabetes and cardiovascular, metabolic and infectious complications that require hospitalization for treatment. Of the diabetic patients hospitalized, 4 to 10% do not know the diagnosis (5,6) . Despite the high prevalence, the diagnosis of diabetes is frequently omitted in the admission records, clinical progression reports and in hospital discharge summaries (5)(6)(7) .…”
