To tackle diabesity, medical research hopes that treatments will be personalized, and to reach this objective, it will be necessary to develop new equipment and analytic techniques. A proper assessment of diabesity requires blood glucose and body composition monitoring. Although with the ongoing application of new technologies, as in the case of the omics techniques, the possibilities for early diagnosis and personalized treatments of diabesity patients are perhaps even closer than we think. Today, the evaluation of diabesity is more accurate due to discovering novel biomarkers and the rapid advances in gene expression profiling, epigenetics, metabolomics, or microbiome analysis. It is, therefore, essential to keep up with the new technologies used for the study of diabesity and its related pathologies
