Obese and Healthy

A study published in the September issue of the journal Diabetes Care found that people who are obese and metabolically healthy could improve their health by loosing weight.  Metabolically healthy means the individual has healthy cholesterol, blood sugar and blood pressure levels.

This new study differs from an earlier finding that people who are obese and healthy may become less healthy by loosing weight.  The new study has yet to provide information as to why and how some people manage to be obese and healthy.

  1. I know that diabetes and weight loss are two things that have been a real struggle for some Americans. My grandmother has been fighting diabetes for about 25 years now and weight loss was a bad solution for her. I guess its just different for all people.

    That’s a really interesting perspective on the obesity issue. Most things you hear and read in the news only discuss the unhealthy attributes of obesity. It’s nice to hear a different argument, for the sake of debate and research in general.
