Snapshot

  • Youth-onset Type 2 diabetes is a real concern in many countries

  • Our data show that increase fat over chest and abdomen is a extremely important determinant of youth-onset diabetes


Slide9 l.jpg

To study the anthropometric, biochemical and immunological profiles of children, adolescents and young adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus and compare them with age-matched healthy controls

Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus in Children, Adolescents and Young Adult Asian Indians (CAYA-2DM Trial):

A Multicenter Collaborative study

Objective


Slide10 l.jpg

  • CAYA-2DM Trial

  • Methods

Subjects:

  • 31 patients; 59 age-matched healthy controls

    Anthropometric Profile:

  • Body mass index, waist circumference, waist-hip ratio, skinfold thickness at 8 sites

  • Percentage body fat by two-point bioelectrical impedance

  • Comparative Clinical Profile
