Purpose: To analyze quality of life, dietary patterns, and metabolic syndrome in countries with the lowest and highest burden of diabetes mellitus (DM2).

Methods and Results: Using the Mann-Whitney U-criterion, we found that the minimum (25 countries) and maximum (25 countries) of 158 countries with DM2 burden was 4-fold different for men in 2004: 186 ± 33 versus 650 ± 122 DALYs (p ≤ 0.0001). There was no difference between country groups in terms of per capita income in 2000. But countries of Group 1 were located in northern latitudes, 49° ± 11°; countries of Group 2 were located in southern latitudes, 14° ± 12° (p ≤ 0.001).

The MS predictors - overweight, obesity, hyperglycemia, and LPA - had no statistical differences between Groups 1 and 2. However, overweight and obesity combined accounted for 80% of the population in both groups 1 and 2.

Hyperlipidemia and BP were 2-fold higher in group 1 (p ≤ 0.0001).

In group 1, there was 1.5 to 4-fold higher consumption: TDC, AP; CV, FS and AB (p ≤ 0.0001).

Conclusion: DM2 burden was 4 times higher in group 2 than in group 1. However, food consumption levels, quality of life and hyperlipidemia were on average 2 times higher in group 1. Obesity and overweight did not differ between country groups, but reached 80% of the populations in both group 1 and 2. Thus, the DM2 burden was 4-fold higher in countries with low quality of life, low food consumption, and low hyperlipidemia.
