Re: [IP] Re: obesity and Type 2, CDC

My question has been and still is? If Type 2 diabetes is due to weight and
exercise. Then why are some of the biggest most sedentary people I know
living without diabetes, You either are pre disposed or not, In fact when I
lost 40 lbs and worked out one hour everyday my Hb1c went from 7.2 to 11.
Then I went on insulin and gained the weigh back plus 20 extra. It can not
only be weight and diet. My 2 brothers have it an one is 150 lbs soaking wet
