Body mass index (BMI) could be used as an index of obesity which is more representative of person’s appropriate body weight. A large part of the cost resulting from micro and macro vascular complications, is spent on controling blood glucose. So this study aims at estimating the incidence of obesity, hyperlipidemia, hyperglycemia in the NIDDM diabetic patients.   Methods & Materials: In a descriptive study 53 diabetic patients of Urmia Diabet Center were selected by “random sampling” then clinical and laboratory examinations were performed and they were asked to fill questionnaires. Body mass index was calculated with ratio of weight (kg) and hight (m2).   Results: The findings showed that the mean age was 55.79 years old and the mean diseases duration was 8.98 years old The main body mass index for all patients was 30.23 kg/m2 for females it was 30.29 and for males 31.45 kg/m2. The incidence of obesity was 72.73% in males and 57.14% in females. The mean serum fasting blood glucose, triglyceride, cholesterol were 193,02, 239.9, 210,3. Respectively, 88.68% was hyperglycemic 39.2% hypertriglyceridemic and 40.9% hypercholestrolemic .
