Obesity and Diabetes

Obesity increases the chances of developing the common type of diabetes, type 2 diabetes. In type 2 diabetes, body makes enough insulin but the cells in the body have become resistant to the salutary action of insulin. Therefore the blood sugar levels are high as the muscle cells become resistant to glucose. Hence, the glucose from blood cannot enter in the cells where it is used for energy.  Fat in the abdomen can also cause insulin insensitivity. An overweight body with a BMI more than 30 is one of the risk factor for Insulin resistance.

The exact causes of diabetes are still not fully understood, it is known that factors up the risk of developing different types of diabetes Mellitus. For type 2 diabetes, this includes being obese (having a body mass index - BMI - of 30 or greater). In fact, obesity is believed to account for 80-85% of the risk of developing type 2 diabetes, while recent research suggests obese people develop type 2 diabetes 80 times more than those with a BMI of less than 22.
