Therefore, it’s necessary pay attention to the above and dangerous sicknesses, especially in field of genetic sciences. Hence, our purpose is investigation of relationship between polymorphism rs9939609 polymorphism of FTO gene, TB and DM. With regards to the findings, it was concluded that there was considerable relationship between FTO gene rs9939609 polymorphism and DM and also it was notable development of TB among diabetic people.
