Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is a major public health problem that is significantly linked to another worldwide epidemic — obesity. Although there are many risk factors for developing T2DM, such as age, stress, certain medications, and genetics or family history, being overweight or obese remains the single best predictor of T2DM. 

Over the decades, as metabolic syndrome and metabolic surgery began rising to the forefront, the words “diabetes” and “obesity” were eventually unified to create the new, more descriptive term — diabesity.
