According to new findings cited in the Guardian, anyone who couldn’t fit into jeans when they were wearing them at age 21 was at risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
The newspaper, citing Professor Roy Taylor of Newcastle University, reported that even those with a normal body mass index who can no longer wear their old trousers are “carrying on too much fat”.
Early results from a study presented by Taylor at the annual conference of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes showed that 8 out of 12 people with diabetes, despite a normal BMI, lost 10% to 15% of their body weight to beat it. given, which led to reductions in fat levels in the liver and pancreas. This helped control blood sugar levels, resulting in patients no longer needing medication.
“Doctors believe that type 2 diabetes has a different cause in people who are not overweight,” but the findings suggest otherwise, Taylor was quoted as saying.
