Obesity and Diabetes

Obesity is regularly caused by an underlying condition characterised by excessive body fat build-up. It has a major negative impact on health, especially by raising the risk of other chronic illnesses such as heart disease and diabetes. Obesity is defined as a BMI (Body Mass Index) of more than 30 kg/m2. Obesity is one of the most prevalent disorders in developed nations, and its prevalence is rising.

Obesity increases the risk of developing type 2 diabetes, also known as insulin-resistant diabetes or adult-onset diabetes. This is when your blood glucose level remains elevated over a lengthy period of time. According to a study, obese people are up to 80 times more likely than non-obese people to get type 2 diabetes. Managing obesity through a combination of a balanced diet, regular physical activity, and, in some cases, medical intervention can help improve insulin sensitivity and reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Additionally, early detection and appropriate management of diabetes can help prevent complications associated with the condition.

There are several ways in which obesity can contribute to the development of diabetes:

  • Insulin
  • Inflammation and Cytokines
  • Dyslipidemia
  • Beta Cell Dysfunction
  • Influence on Hormones
  • Ectopic Fat Accumulation
  • Lifestyle Factors
