Uncoupling obesity & Diabetes
« on: August 15, 2018, 07:46:40 PM »
Interesting observations from the study
“We found a microRNA called miR-30a – a small non-coding RNA molecule that regulates gene expression – that could stimulate pathways important for fat metabolism. Originally, we thought that expressing miR-30a would lead to weight loss because it would be driving fat metabolism, but we observed something different. We found miR-30a did not correlate with leanness; instead, it was associated with a form of obesity in which subjects actually maintained insulin sensitivity.”

I think it shows that you can't put everyone in the same category.  All obese people don't have diabetes and all diabetics are not obese.  Something that I think needs to be realized by health professionals.

Exactly! I've been overweight my entire adult life, but diabetes never came along until my mid-to-late sixties. There was even some history of diabetes on my mom's side, but apparently even that had scant effect on me until late in life.

So personal experience makes me a little skeptical of some of the theories put forth about these things.
