If you are one of the millions who have struggled with obesity, you are not alone. Approximately 40% (about 93.3 million) of adults in the U.S. are obese. This isn’t just a cosmetic concern — but a medical issue that increases the risk of other health conditions. There are many reasons someone may be affected by obesity, such as inherited factors like genetics.

The Link Between Obesity & Diabetes
Did you know that obesity is linked to up to half of new diabetes cases annually in the U.S.? Diabetes is a chronic health condition marked by an impairment in how the body regulates and uses sugar (glucose) as fuel.
After a meal, your body breaks down the food into glucose and releases it into your bloodstream. When your blood sugar increases, it signals your pancreas to release insulin, allowing your body’s cells to use the blood sugar as energy or to store as fat for later use.
With type 2 diabetes, the pancreas makes insulin, but the body doesn’t use it efficiently. This causes increased blood sugar levels, which stimulates the pancreas to produce more insulin and eventually leads to fat deposition, hyperglycemia, and cardiovascular disease. Losing 5-7% of your body weight may lower your risk of developing type 2 diabetes. However, if you already have the condition, it may be possible to reverse it and get off your medications with weight loss.
