Abstract

The objective of this descriptive study, with a cross-sectional design, was to evaluate the nutritional profile of people with type 2 diabetes mellitus treated at the Integrated Health Care Clinic of UNA University Center, Belo Horizonte, Brazil. Data were collected from medical records of people with type 2 diabetes mellitus, seen at the clinic, in the second half of 2017, including 29 people, 79.3% of whom were female. There was a predominance of elderly people, mean age of 58.7 ± 14.3 years, 34.5% single and 38% married, average family income of R $ 2,258.66 ± R $ 1,346, 56, 48.3% hypertensive, 89.7% non-smokers; 41.4% consumed alcoholic beverages; 75.9% sedentary, 79.3% obese, 75.9% with a degree of cardiovascular risk associated with the waist circumference measures found. The classification of very high cardiovascular risk prevailed in both sexes, 86.4% female and 71.4% male. All women had high waist circumference. 91.3% of people who do not practice physical activity had cardiovascular risk. The studied group had a high prevalence of obesity and physical inactivity, with a very high number of people at cardiovascular risk among women and those who were sedentary. Strategies that aim to change these conditions, integrating multidisciplinary teams are essential for the prevention and control of complications related to this disease, in addition, when carrying out nutritional planning, it must be individualized and these conditions need to be considered in its elaboration.
