Is There Much Difference Between A Thin Person With Type 2 And A Person That Has To Lose Wieght To Control Diabetes.

Is There Much Difference Between A Thin Person With Type 2 And A Person That Has To Lose Wieght To Control Diabetes.

I seem to be in the lower percentile that doesn't have a wieght problem but has type 2 anyway. The reading I've done on diabeties mostly talk about wieght loss. Is there something different I should be doing?

I don't know why that happens. Low carb diet helps me.

Is this good or bad ... i would have thought that lesser you weigh is good, provided you you control you carbs & sugar intake to bare minimum . Good healthy diet of green salads, friuy & veg with lean meat like chicken can't be bad ..

Ok for one I'm a skinny person. I don't think your assessment of certainly fat inside is correct. For one I inherited this disease from my grandfather on my mother's side. So medically speaking if a person has diabetes it is from several different possibilities, "certainly fat inside" isn't one I have seen in the medical journals or on diabetes.org or fit2me.com or the American Diabetes association, or the medical journal for diabetes. I walk up to 8 miles a day plus I have a physically demanding job. I do not have a fatty liver. I eat good clean healthy foods.
