Obesity is a serious and critical problem that affects about 312 million people in the world and who’re at risk of developing diabetes.

Thus, preventing obesity is a high priority for the prevention of diabetes and other chronic diseases. It is vital that the number of obese people be reduced so as to reduce the number of people suffering from diabetes. Heath professionals also need to stop spreading myths about obesity and diabetes. A study by the Diabetes Prevention Program showed that a change lifestyle of obese people helped to reduce the risk of developing diabetes by 58 percent.

But what about the people who already developed diabetes? Is reducing weight the final answer for improving glucose control in the blood? Although many people who develop diabetes are usually obese when developing diabetes, non-obese people have also been found with diabetes which is usually type 1 diabetes. Obese people usually develop type 2 diabetes and as the disease progresses in them, it changes to insulin deficiency from insulin resistance hence it often too late for an obese person to start losing weight in order to improve glucose control in the blood dramatically.

Weight Loss Goals

Most diabetic people can’t achieve an ideal BMI so it isn’t realistic for health professionals to recommend to obese people to strive to achieve an ideal BMI.

To get a clearer picture of this, systematic review was undertaken concerning weight loss trials for a year. It was found among obese people that achieving an ideal body weight by the obese people is not an achievable goal. In the end, it was found out that the obese dieters became disgruntled and frustrated by not being able to achieve the goal recommended by a health physician.

Weight Loss and Glucose Control

It is most likely that in the insipient stages of the disease process, either weight loss or energy restriction will improve levels of glucose in the diabetic person’s body, this is usually when insulin resistance in the diabetic person’s body is still prominent. But as the diabetes progresses in the diabetic person’s body and the deficiency of insulin becomes more conspicuous and prominent, it may be already too little too late for losing of weight to be helpful. Glycemic control should precede and take center stage over concerns and worries about weight.

Does improvement in blood glucose control in a diabetic person’s body result from a decrease in the intake of energy by a diabetic person or does it result from loss of weight? The beneficial and advantageous effects on control of glucose in a diabetic person’s body begin to become noticeable before much loss of weight occurs. Even in diabetic people, the merits of bariatric surgery on glucose of the blood occur rapidly. Because blood glucose improvement occurs quickly and before any significant loss of weight, it has been said that the improvement culminates from nutrients bring diverted away from the alimentary canal and incompletely digested nutrients being delivered to the large intestine.

Intentional weight loss has a mortality effect on type two diabetes. Et al Williamson reported that diabetic people who had lost weight intentionally in the study of preventing cancer experienced a twenty-five percent reduction in the total mortality and a twenty-eight percent reduction in the diseases of the heart and vascular body system plus mortality of diabetes. The cohort was subsequently followed for twelve point nine years, these shows and effect of memory of loss of weight intentionally, which can be sustained even if the loss of weight isn’t fully maintained and checked. In another analysis of one thousand four hundred and one obese diabetic adults done in the survey of National Health Interview, people striving for weight loss had a twenty-three percent lower rate of mortality than those people who had not reported striving for weight loss. This shows that even if loss of weight isn’t achieved, taking of smaller quantities of food may have long term beneficial effects.

It can therefore be seen that weight loss and diabetes are two intertwined things that if you increase you gain weight you are at higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes and also if you’re obese and you start losing weight you increase glucose control in your blood hence reducing diabetes if you had it or reduce the chances of developing diabetes.
