It is a well known fact that the prevalence of type 2 diabetes (T2DM) increases each year. It has a complex etiology that includes irreversible risk factors such as age, genetics, race, and ethnicity, as well as reversible risk factors such as diet, physical activity, and smoking. The goals of this review are to look at various studies that investigate the paths to assess the nutritional status of patients with T2DM who are also linked to chronic diseases. In patients with type 2 diabetes, malnutrition has been recognized as a serious health problem, mainly in hospitalized conditions.
