    This implies that diabetes is caused by diet. I don't think the

    Diet is an inarguable contributory factor to developing "type II" or
    non-insulin dependent Diabetes Mellitus. Type I or insulin dependent
    DM normally develops quickly and when a person is quite young, which
    is why it had been called "juvenile diabetes" and involves substantial
    or total destruction of the pancreatic insulin-producing beta cells of
    the islets of Langerhans. Type II or non-insulin dependent DM has a
    web of "causes":

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diabete...s_type_2#Cause

    diet being a prime factor.


    And yes, the medical community (of which I am one of) buys it!

    I thought the medical community was pushing that concept, despite the

    It depends what you mean by "caused by diet". If a person has
    prediabetes, it's established that their progression to diabetes
    is affected by diet. Also, if a person has newly diagnosed
    Type 2 diabetes and is obese, their outlook improves if their
    caloric input is reduced (including, those who go through a
    gastric bypass procedure at this point have an improved outlook).

    What hasn't been established is whether a person's lifetime risk
    of diabetes is affected by their lifelong diet. There are strong
    hints in this direction, including from studies of native American
    populations, but no proof. There perhaps never will be any proof
    because there are too many confounding variables.

    Very much disagree. At the time I was diagnosed I was eating a low fat,
    vegetarian diet. Almost Ornish but unlike Ornish I did eat some cheese and
    eggs. And I was getting plenty of exercise.

    My daughter is 13 and was diagnosed with very high insulin production and
    subsequent insulin resistance. So far no high blood sugar. She was told to
    eat a low carb diet in the hopes that this will help knock down the amount
    of insulin she produces. Too soon to tell if it will help but she is also
    on a diabetes med to help with the insulin resistance.

    That's what I mean when I said "causes" is a very strong word. Almost
    nothing in health sciences is a 100% guaranteed thing. Like smoking.
    Not everyone who smokes cigarettes gets lung or other forms of cancer.
    But smoking is the #1 most likely caused of any cancer. And there are
    plenty of people who get cancer who never smoked cigarettes.

    And like with you, you do everything right dietarially and
    exercisewise, and wham! you get DM anyway. Go figure!

    Life's a crap shoot like that! That's why I laugh at Bryan and all his
    technical minutia about this type and that type of fat. He thinks he's
    being so smart and careful not to ingest any of the "wrong" kinds of
    fat, and he's gonna get CVD anyway! We all will, eventually, to some
    degree.

    And if nothing else kills us first, cancer will. That you can take to
    the bank too! Isn't that a happy thought??!!

    It will also keep her from getting fat, which is aesthetic advantage.
    Fat women are considered to be unattractive in our culture. She is at
    a crossroad. She could end up obese and diabetic, or she could make
    insulin fairly irrelevant by eliminating starches and high GI fruits,
    and eat a more ketogenic diet.

    It is tragic when a 13 YO has already become insulin resistant, but at
    that age it's certainly not too late.

    I have seen no evidence that a low carb diet will keep one from getting fat.
    IMO, people who go to a low carb diet and stick to it might lose weight
    because they are no longer eating the calories they ate from carbs.
    However... I know plenty of fat people who also eat low carb.

    If obesity caused diabetes, then every obese person would have it. And they

    What is considered to be fat and unattractive has changed over the
    years. Lucy Ricardo's "fat" 50's sidekick Ethel Mertz hardly registers
    as plump today. The onslaught of vanity women's clothing sizes
    (replacing a sizing standard* put out by the US National Bureau of
    Standards) makes every woman at least two sizes smaller than she used
    to be. (I have noticed that the more expensive the clothing line, the
    smaller the size my wife takes.) When every woman you see is at least
    a little chunky, then chunky is the new svelte.

    That's very true.

    Some years ago I went into my mom's rag drawer and found a pair of my pants
    from Jr. High or High school. They were labeled as a size 14 and they were
    very small looking. These days size 14 is considered a plus size.

    It's not entirely myth. You folks just don't get it!! Almost nothing
    is 100% cause and effect when it comes to your health and diet! Get it
    right! There are some obese people that never develop diabetes, and
    there are some thin people that do develop diabetes!! But the
    percentage of obese people who develop diabetes is much greater than
    the percentage of thin people who develop it!!

    One thing that is apparently VERY prevalent all over the U.S. and
    particularly *more* prevalent in the southeastern states is obesity.
    And it's been getting worse everywhere in the U.S. and getting worse
    FASTER in the southeast! The CDC has been compiling yearly statistics
    and they are frightening!!

    http://www.cdc.gov/nccdphp/dnpa/obes...maps/index.htm

    Paula Deen cooking style is certainly contributory. (Notice I did NOT
    say "causal"!)

    It makes it hard to buy clothing, too. You can't go buy
    size when you choose what to take into the dressing room.

    When I was 20 or thereabouts, at 5'2" I would have to go to
    an 11/12 if my weight got up to 120. Now you see people
    weighing 150 and they're all happy to be in a size 4. Unless
    all your weight is in your feet, it's not really a size 4.
    Sizes don't mean much at all anymore.

    I wonder where actually tiny people shop, I should ask my
    mother. Anything labeled even XS would be a tent on her
    anymore.
