The risk factor of diabettes mellitus such as parents income, snack, activity, birth weight, number of large meals, history of diabettes melitus in family. The risk factor can increase blood glucose level so this sudy was conducted to analyze the correlation between the risk factors of diabetes mellitus and glucose level in obese adolescents. METHOD: This study is a cross sectional study undertaken at 3 junior high school in Manado. Blood glucose level was conducted and questionnaire about DM risk factors was given to 83 obese teenagers (BMI > 95 th percentile) RESULT: From 83 obese aldolescent. 9 aldolescent experienced impaired blood glucose level (10.8%). There was boys ( 61.4%), and girls (38.6%). Blood glucose level < 100 (49.3%), 100-150 (37.3%), 150-200 (2.6%), > 200 (10.8%). There was a significant correlation between the number of large meals and glucose (rs = 0.195, p= 0,039). There was no significant correlation between parents income, snack, activity, birth weight, history of diabetes mellitus in family.
