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 the study, a group of 4000 type 2 diabetics were followed. Those that remained obese over the 2-year period had significantly more trouble keeping their blood sugar in check –despite taking the same medications as the normal or slightly overweight group. In fact, only one-third of the obese group was able to achieve normal blood sugar levels.
