Obesity and Diabetes

Obesity is particularly associated with an enhanced risk of developing Diabetes Mellitus 2. Both being overweight with enhanced abdominal fat and being obese is thought to contribute about 80 to 90 per cent of all DM2 development. Women with a BMI of 23 to 25 have a four-fold higher risk of type 2 diabetes than those with a BMI less than 20. Without the intercession of a healthy diet and proper exercise, obesity can lead to type 2 diabetes over a generally short period of time. The good news is that decreasing your body weight, by even a small amount, can help improve your body's insulin sensitivity and reduce your risk of developing cardiovascular and metabolic conditions such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease and types of cancer.
