    Not sure if anyone else has posted this series of articles. There are 8 in total and it takes a while to read through, but definitely worthwhile. One of the series covers the subject of this thread as well, ie. which comes first, overweight or insulin resistance:

    Hi . I did read about this research and found it very interesting . I'm thin myself so it is one explanation about why I have diabetes . The paper I read also went on to say that if they could fine a way to target weight lose in the pancreas it would only take a lose of only one gram of fat to get the pancreas to work properly again but that at the moment it was a long way of

    Sorry Clive I've just spotted your reply.
    I've lost weight in the past by starvation. Herbalife milk shakes or under counter appetite suppressants. Excessive exercise at one point too. I've got 3 stone lighter but never stayed off.
    I'm doing lchf and sugars are good with very slow fluculating weight gain/loss. Not sure how much resistance I have due to the underactive thyroid.
    A professor in St Thomas's hospital London allowed me to be 15 and a half stone to go on his ivf programme. Metformin trials helped me at the time with appetite suppressants which both got stopped a month before hand. Hence I added 2 stone throughout cycle and it failed.
    Metformin for pcos not diabetes. Some might argue that that treatment disguised diabetes. I was never tested for diabetes til I changed gp practice.
    Going on Insulin this year added only 6lb due to implementing lchf diet at the same time.
    I was taking nearly 140units of insulin per day now 64units at mo. Due to canagliflozin 100mgs to help and perfecting the lchf diet.
    I've since lost the gained 6lb and just a few more. However Rome wasn't built in a day! :)

    Something I wonder. Why when type2s de-stress they can exercise their way to weight loss. Diet counteracted by meds or not if diet agrees with them anyway.
    I wonder what percentage is human error. As there has to be some when collating diagnosis.
    Also hoe much is down to foetus not developed enough to take the carb lifestyle. How many of us were born premature?
    Maybe we have broken the bodies mechanisms and will never be able to fix it.
    Of course we all want a cure but it's important to enjoy the life we have now but without being too reckless.
    I wish everyone a Merry Christmas!
    Be happy and get out and enjoy your life. Yes we have diabetes but life goes on! ;-)
