Resumen: The purpose of this study was to examine the prevalence of DM in a sample of Hispanic patients with chronic HCV infection evaluated at the San Juan VA Medical Center and to correlate the presence of DM with age and BMI. The authors examined 735 records from the HCV registry. Most of the patients were male with an overall mean age of 54. Thirty-two per cent had DM. The proportion of diabetes was higher in the obese/morbidly obese as compared to lean/overweight patients. The presence of DM also increased after age 50.
