Over the past years, type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) has become a global pandemic, both in developed and developing countries [1,2]. Its aetiology is multifactorial, including genetic factors, increasing age, obesity and insulin resistance [3]. Among these factors, obesity is of paramount importance, and its management can be of benefit [4,5].
