Diabetes is often associated with overweight people who develop it after poor eating and lifestyle habits. But there is also a non-obese driven diabetes sometimes referred to as Thin Diabetes. Stomach fat can be a factor but even those with what appears to be little stomach fat can develop diabetes. Overall body weight can be deceptive too since a person's weight might fall within guidelines but their pancreas is not providing enough insulin which helps sugar get into cells for energy. This type is known as Type 1 Diabetes.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xvV1C3j8eyU&rel=0
- You can be thin and still be at risk for diabetes. It's a misconception that obese people are only at risk
- Diabetes is becoming an epidemic. You are starting to see children with diabetes more now than ever.
- Many people are diabetic and do not know it because they have no symptoms.
"Diabetes Type 2 is the most widely recognized type of Diabetes, which makes up around 90% of Diabetes cases globally."
