Evaluation of Intra-Abdominal Fat in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes Using a Non-Invasive Method
Evaluation of Intra-Abdominal Fat Contents in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes Using a Novel Non-Invasive Method of Bioelectric Impedance
The main aim of this study is to compare 2 different measurements of visceral fat that can be easily used in clinical practice (waist circumference versus bioelectric impedance) in relation to known risk factors of coronary artery disease in a large cohort of patients with type 2 diabetes and with a BMI range between 20-45 kg/m2

Non-Probability Sample
The investigators will identify and recruit 500 patients. Participants for this study (men and women) will be recruited for the diabetes outpatient clinic of the Joslin Diabetes Center. Subjects from minority and various ethnic/racial groups will be invited to participate in the study at the same proportional to Massachusetts's population, which is 86.5% white, 6.9 Black, 0.3% American Indian and Alaska, 4.9 Asian, 0.1% Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander and 8.2% of Hispanic or Latino origin. The investigators will monitor our recruitment by gender and race/ethnicity and modify our recruitment procedures if necessary to ensure that there is no selection bias due to these factors.
