Over a period of time, anthropometric parameters have evolved into reliable indicators for predicting the incidence of diabetes mellitus.

This study examined correlations between anthropometry and lipid profile in type 2 diabetics. The limited observations made in this study reveal that anthropometric parameters are not ideal for predicting lipid profile abnormalities in type 2 diabetics.
