Japanese study finds: "Over 60% of diabetic subjects are not obese (BMI < 25)"


Not obese, but sick! The cardiometabolic markers were higher in diabetic subjects than in non-diabetic subjects in both obese and non-obese subjects. But hey, the real news is still that non-obese individuals comprise more than half of all persons with diabetes in population of 17,098 men and 17,199 women who participated in a voluntary health checkup program between 1998 and 2006 conducted in Japan.
