Diabetes and Obesity

Diabetes and Obesity

The UK is officially the ‘fattest’ country in Europe, with approximately 1 in 5 adults overweight and one in every 15 obese.

Over the next 20 years, the number of obese adults in the country is forecast to soar by a staggering 73% to 26 million people.

According to health experts, such a rise would result in more than a million extra cases of type 2 diabetes, heart disease and cancer.

No longer a condition

Obesity is also no longer a condition that just affects older people, although the likelihood does increase with age, and increasing numbers of young people have been diagnosed with obesity

How does obesity cause type 2 diabetes?

It is a well known fact that if you are overweight or obese, you are at greater risk of developing type 2 diabetes, particularly if you have excess weight around your tummy (abdomen).

Preventing obesity

The links between obesity and type 2 diabetes are firmly established – without the intervention of a healthy diet and appropriate exercise, obesity can lead to type 2 diabetes over a relatively short period of time.

 

Good News

The good news is that reducing your body weight, by even a small amount, can help improve your body’s insulin sensitivity and lower your risk of developing cardiovascular and metabolic conditions such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease and types of cancer.

According to the NHS, a 5% reduction in body weight followed up by regular moderate intensity exercise could reduce your type 2 diabetes risk by more than 50%.
