Many diabetics become frustrated when they see a sky-high blood sugar reading despite religiously taking their medications. A study published in this week’s Diabetes, Obesity and Metabolism found that managing blood sugar in type 2 diabetics who are obese is nearly impossible unless they reduce their body weight.

In fact, only one-third of the obese group was able to achieve normal blood sugar levels.
