Abstract(s)The association between diabetes mellitus (DM) and tuberculosis (TB) has been a matter of study worldwide, since it is assumed that DM triples the risk of TB. Recent studies have found discrepant prevalence of DM among TB patients, ranging from 5.3% in Denmark to 44% in India. There is an urgent need to control both epidemics in order to achieve the World Health Organization (WHO) TB elimination goal. To reach this goal, an integrated approach between TB elimination strategies and control of noncommunicable diseases that perpetuate the risk for TB is fundamental.
