Obesity & Diabetes

Is There a Link Between Obesity and Diabetes?

Yes. Nearly 80 percent of people with type II (adult onset) diabetes are obese.

In particular, the storage of significant excess fat around the middle of the body (intra-abdominal fat) leads to a greater risk of diabetes.

However, losing as little as 10 pounds of body weight can reduce the risk of diabetes significantly.
