    Background: Obesity and diabetes “second type” related medical problems have become of major cause of increase in mortality rates. It is, therefore, useful to understand the relationship between insulin and fat in the body during the process of turning these variables into diabetes. Materials and Methods: Data for the current analysis were obtained from Al-Sadr Teaching Hospital, the Centre for Research and Treatment of Diabetes, during the period of October 2012–January 2013. Clinical details of 26 (both sexes, age ranged between 35 and 60 years) patients with type 2 diabetes were studied. They were divided into two groups depending on body mass index (BMI) <25 and larger and equal to 25. Age-matched 22 healthy men and women also included as a control group. Results: The results of this study showed a significant increase of lipid profile and insulin hormone in diabetic patients compared with the control group in BMI < 25. As well as, a significant (P < 0.01) increase in fasting blood sugar and serum cholesterol was found in diabetic patients compared with control group in BMI larger than 25. On the other hand, it did not show a significant increase in each of triglycerides and insulin hormone in diabetic patients compared with control group in BMI larger than 25. Conclusion: Triglycerides, insulin hormone, and BMI are positively correlated regardless of the presence of diabetes. However, the majority of diseases, including type 2 diabetes, are caused by overweight and decreased physical activity with increased calories.
