Abstract
Background
Type 2 diabetes and obesity have reached epidemic proportions all over the world. Women will account for the majority of diabetic cases by the year 2050. Diet plays an important role in causation, management and complications of obesity and type 2 diabetes which are inter related.

Objectives
To compare the meat consumption with glycemic control, BMI and blood pressure in pre-menopausal patients of type 2 diabetes.
Materials and Methods
This is a retrospective study done from the medical records of the patients of type 2 diabetes. The study group consisted of 100 Female diabetic patients on treatment aged less than 40 years. They were divided into two groups based on their food habits with respect to type of meat consumed (viz. red meat consumers, white meat consumers). Their FBS, PPBS, BMI, Blood pressure and diet history were noted.
Statistics
Parameters between red meat & white meat consumers were compared by unpaired t-test. All tests were two-tailed and p< 0.05 is considered as significant.
Results
The data when analysed statistically revealed that red meat consumption was positively associated with poor glycemic control in terms of both FBS and PPBS (p < 0.0005). There was a significant association of red meat consumption with BMI and blood pressure (p <0.0005 and p=0.0001 respectively).
Conclusion
Our study indicates that consumption of red meat may aggravate indices of glycemic control, Obesity and blood pressure in pre-menopausal patients with type 2 diabetes. Hormonal protection provided by estrogen is overridden by the consumption of red meat. Moderation of red meat consumption should be advocated to patients of type 2 diabetes.

Key words: Keywords: Red meat, White meat, Type 2 Diabetes, Blood Pressure, Body Mass Index, Pre-menopausal women
