Significance of question formation:
.There is a large number of overweight or obese people with type 2 diabetes mellitus. According to the CDC 1 out of 10 people are diagnosed with the prevalence of obesity and Type 2 diabetes increases yearly along with mortality rates. The CDC reports 1 in 10 people are diabetic and 90-95% of those people are type 2 diabetics. (2021). From 2017 to 2020, National Center for Health Statistics reported 41% – 44% of US adults are obese. (2021) There is also an increase in healthcare expenditures to treat those diagnosed as diabetic and obese. As an Advanced Practice Nurse, it is important to do research and discuss with your patient effective evidence-based interventions and treatments for various disease processes.
