Type 2 Diabetes Risk Increased From Visceral Fat

More evidence that Type 2 diabetes is little more than an illness of choice for the fat.
Excess visceral fat and insulin resistance, but not general adiposity, are independently associated with incident prediabetes and type 2 diabetes mellitus, according to a study that followed up 732 obese individuals for a median of 7 years.
It is clear that fat people have more visceral fat than intended-size humans.
"Although increased body mass index (BMI) is associated with diabetes at the population level, it does not adequately discriminate diabetes risk among obese individuals. Indeed, many obese persons appear resistant to the development of metabolic disease," the authors write.
The lip service to the "many obese" is hogwash.

There is no need to discriminate among the fat to distinguish the relative few who will develop this disease of choice.

Because if you are not fat, it will almost certainly not develop.
