Research Shows That Not Only Obese People Get Type 2 Diabetes


American researchers discovered that adults who are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and are of a healthy weight actually have higher mortality rates than their higher weight peers. This may come as a bit of a shock but the research  published in the Journal of the American Medical Association confirms that the risk of dying from heart disease along with diabetes is much higher. While more research is needed, it appears there is validity to this discovery. A new study however has shown that exercise on the other hand can help combat a diagnosis by nearly 40% which reveals that no matter a person’s weight, exercise can be beneficial.
