This study aims to evaluate the effects of FTO gene polymorphism (rs17817449andrs1588413) as predictor/ risk factors of type 2 diabetes mellitus in obese Iraqi population. Four hundred obese participants clinically diagnosed with type 2 diabetes were enrolled in this study. A similar matching group of obese non-diabetic control group was also included in this study. Multi-nominal logistic regression analysis applied to study genotype and allele frequencies for FTO gene polymorphism (rs17817449, rs1588413) in patients and control groups. The homozygous genotype significantly (OR= 4.61, CI 95% 2.61-8.12, P

Key words: FTO gene polymorphisms; rs17817449; rs1588413; Type 2 diabetes; obesity
