Diabetes is not just a fat persons disease

Recommended Posts

its not a fat people disease its a "people who eat too much sugar" disease.  you can eat too much sugar and not be overweight .  there are so many super sugary foods that just completely tank your pancreas (the organ that regulates insulin production) without neccesarily making you overweight

Type 2 diabetes and insulin resistance is common in overweight people but not exclusive to them. The old correlation does not mean causation and what not.

 

Type 1 Is developed in childhood and type 2 tends to be developed in adulthood.  

From my understanding type 1 your pancreas stops or cant produce adequate insulin from a defect or problem in the organ itself.  Type 2 tends to be poor eating habits stressing out the organ so bad it cant work properly anymore.
