>>an and ElvisToo posted
The
diabetes is the cause of the weight gain and "laziness" -- 
not the other way
around.<<

Another article which states that obesity is a risk factor 
in developing Type 2:

"Type 2 diabetes may account for about 90% to 95% of all 
diagnosed cases of diabetes. Risk factors for type 2 
diabetes include older age, obesity, family history of 
diabetes, prior history of gestational diabetes, impaired 
glucose tolerance, physical inactivity, and 
race/ethnicity."
