BMI is one way to determine the nutritional status is used to determine whether a person is obese or not. BMI has nothing to do with blood sugar levels with DM (Hartono, 2006). The general objective of this study was to determine the relationship between Body Mass Index (BMI) with blood sugar levels of type 2 diabetic
