Non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) is a multifactorial disease resulting from the interaction of genetic and environmental factors. The aim of this study was to evaluate the factors associated with lipid metabolism and treatment response in type 2 diabetic patients monitored at CHD-Atacora (Benin). A total of 200 diabetic patients were included in the study. 121 women and 79 men into two groups; namely 132 had hyperglycemia and 68 in normoglycemia. Diabetics had a mean BMI of 27.95 kg / m2 while normoglycemic subjects had a BMI of 24.84 kg / m2. In addition, diabetic subjects had an average triglyceride level of 2.28 mmol / L whereas subjects with normoglycemia had an average triglyceride level of 1.04 mmol / L. Oral antibiotics did not have a significant effect on lipid metabolism and glycemic control. Eating habits were similar in both groups and did not respond to a balanced diet. The results of our study reveal that triglyceride levels and BMI are a factor influencing the glycemic status of diabetic subjects. Low levels of BMI and triglyceride levels promote good glycemic control in diabetic patients monitored in the diabetic department of CHD-Atacora.
