Type 2 is a lifestyle disease. Too much food and not enough exercise. Year after year after year. Pathetic.
There are a lot of type 2's who are athletes and others who get the disease even though they've kept themselves in excellent physical condition. How does that work?
Quote following research on this subject:
"Type 2 diabetes is believed to have a strong genetic link, meaning that it tends to run in families. Several genes are being studied that may be related to the cause of type 2 diabetes."
"Ethnicity: Certain groups, such as African Americans, Native Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Japanese Americans, have a greater risk of developing type 2 diabetes than non-Hispanic whites."
"Aging: Increasing age is a significant risk factor for type 2 diabetes. The risk of developing type 2 diabetes begins to rise significantly at about age 45, and rises considerably after age 65."
And you are totally ignorant. Pathetic
