Obesity Can Lead To Diabetes

Reasons For Obesity Leading To Diabetes

serious disease - diabetesMany diagnosed with diabetes are listed as being ‘overweight’ or ‘obese’, but is there a correlation between the two realities or is it a simple coincidence? There are some people who believe diabetes and obesity are not interlinked, but research studies have shown these two to have a deeper connection. Let’s take a look at why obesity tends to lead to diabetes for patients.

 

Individual Cells Stressed

Diabetes occurs at the micro level as the body is unable to produce insulin that is required to sustain homeostasis (i.e. internal balance). When the insulin is not being made on a consistent basis, the body will start to become frail and weaken.

This is a general case of obesity, but what happens when the individual is overweight. The chances of recovering for diabetes tends to falter because the individual cells are being routinely stressed.

As you are eating more and more, the cells and their receptors start sending signals to the rest of the body. The signals are saying ‘it is time to shut things down so we can process the excess nutrients’ and this means insulin cannot be pumped in.

As the stress on the individual cells start to accumulate more and more, it will lead to severe diabetes in the individual. The cells will start to shut down and the issue worsens.

Production of Resistin

The body is designed to handle nutrients and proteins in a certain manner. There are limits in place that make sure the body does not overdo things which causes imbalance internally.

Over time, the body will start to develop resistin if there is excess weight in place. This is to help the body save energy and focus on handling the excess weight that is present.

What does resistin do for the patient? It will disable the insulin from getting to the cells at a normal level. This reduced access to the cell makes it impossible for the body to remain healthy.

As weight is shed, the body is able to get rid of the resistin that has developed and make sure everything returns back to normal.

Sugar Remains in Bloodstream

When the body starts to shut off at the cellular level, the sugar will begin to remain inside the bloodstream. Not only will this lead to diabetes, it will lead to a sustained growth in weight which worsens the issue.

To refresh the body and make sure the insulin is going where it is supposed to, the patient has to lose weight as soon as possible and start heading in the right direction.

PEDF

This is a protein that is released into the body that can become the catalyst for the individual becoming a diabetic.

What does PEDF have to do with diabetes? Generally, this protein is going to come in contact with the liver and/or muscles which results in them becoming desensitized to insulin. They will simply not read the emergence of new insulin that is coming in and that causes issues and results in diabetes.

The more the insulin is resisted, the pancreas will try to overcompensate and produce more. This will result in the insulin stopping as a whole internally.

These are four of the most important reasons for diabetics generally being obese. Being overweight can lead to a number of issues as the body is taxed to hold the excess weight in place. Diabetes is one of those issues that becomes more and more apparent as time goes on.
