Scope note: Subclase de DIABETES MELLITUS no dependiente de la INSULINA (DMNID). Este tipo de diabetes se caracteriza por existir inicialmente RESISTENCIA A LA INSULINA e HIPERINSULINEMIA y, eventualmente, INTOLERANCIA A LA GLUCOSA, HIPERGLUCEMIA y diabetes manifiesta. La diabetes mellitus tipo II ya no se considera como una enfermedad exclusivamente de adultos. Es infrecuente el desarrollo de CETOSIS en los pacientes aunque con frecuencia los pacientes tienen OBESIDAD.

Scope note: A subclass of DIABETES MELLITUS that is not INSULIN-responsive or dependent (NIDDM). It is characterized initially by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA; and eventually by GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; HYPERGLYCEMIA; and overt diabetes. Type II diabetes mellitus is no longer considered a disease exclusively found in adults. Patients seldom develop KETOSIS but often exhibit OBESITY.
