The results describe, the mean age of the type II exposed cases was 13.45 years with SD 2.11 years (IQR 9 - 17 Years); the mean BMI was 36.22 kg/m2, height to weight ratio was found to be significantly associated with type II diabetes. Risk factors significantly differ with increase of type II diabetes, intake of frozen food, junk food, family history, sedentary life, family separation, obesity fell in to the body mass index condition is the toll to increase the prevalence of type II diabetes.
