Could someone still get type 2 diabetes if they exercise regularly - almost to the stage of obsessive exercising?

Don't forget, healthy lifestyle reduces risk of type 2 diabetes, but has no bearing on developing type 1 diabetes. So yeah, this exercise fanatic could have diabetes (and there's a peak of type 1 in the 30-40 age range). ...Read more

Thank : Thank you for your question. I would suggest you look at the website for the american diabetes association, www.Diabetes.Org. This site will provide a wealth of information for you and your friend. As you may know, type 2 diabetes is a condition where the body develops a resistance to insulin. As a result, the body has to make more and more Insulin to process glucose properly. The excess in glucose and Insulin eventually has several bad effects on the body, and can result in heart disease, vascular disease, kidney disease, eye disease and nerve problems. A diabetic diet is low in carbohydrates, especially simple sugars. By following a diabetic diet, and losing weight if one is overweight, some people can treat and even cure their diabetes without medicines. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Suggest seeing your doctor of dietician. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
