Abstract

Diabetes mellitus is a group of metabolic conditions characterized by high blood glucose resulting from defects in insulin production, insulin action, or both. Obesity is associated with a rise in the prevalence of type 2 diabetes mellitus, especially in adults younger than 65 years. Several epidemiological studies indicate that people with type 2 diabetes mellitus have reduced pulmonary function compared with individuals without diabetes. However, the exact mechanism is not well understood. This case report presents a patient with type 2 diabetes and respiratory comorbidities and explores evidence-based nutrition management.
