Your Weight and Diabetes
There are many risk factors for type 2 diabetes such as age, race, pregnancy, stress, certain medications, genetics or family history, high cholesterol and obesity. However, the single best predictor of type 2 diabetes is overweight or obesity.
Being overweight puts added pressure on the body's ability to properly control blood sugar using insulin and therefore makes it much more likely to develop diabetes.
Studies have found that lifestyle changes and small amounts of weight loss in the range of 5-10% can prevent or delay the development of type 2 diabetes among high-risk adults.
