Anthropometric parameters have been widely used as reliable indicators for predicting the incidence of diabetes mellitus in children. Growth parameters are important indicators of a child's overall health and growth patterns, and they are influenced by factors like blood glucose levels in diabetic children. A number of studies have shown correlations between anthropometry and other metabolic disorders. Various studies have shown that anthropometric parameters such as height, weight, BMI, waist circumference (WC), waist hip ratio (WHR), and waist height ratio (WHR) are useful indicators for predicting incidence of type I diabetes. This study aims to study the health status and growth pattern of diabetic children using anthropometric measurements.
