Obesity and type 2 diabetes are actually two sides of the same coin. Both are characterized by insulin resistance (ineffective insulin) and hyperinsulinism (excessive insulin). About 85% of type 2 diabetic are obese and most obese people have insulin resistance and hyperinsulinism that leads to diabetes. Obesity is known to play a central role in increasing insulin resistance in the human body. Insulin resistance in the body results in increased production of insulin and consequent hyperinsulinemia. It seems that at some point a loss of control of blood glucose begins to emerge, resulting in dietary glucose intolerance ultimately resulting in type 2 diabetes. Obese individuals may develop different degrees of insulin resistance, but not all individuals develop glucose intolerance. This is where genetics play a role.
