Professor at Newcastle University. Dr. Roy Taylor draws attention to a danger that concerns many of us, but that most of us probably don’t even know about. Moreover, using quite interesting examples.
Taylor, who is an expert on diabetes, listed the risks of not being able to wear the pants we were able to wear when we were 21, that is, even if we haven’t gained much weight, our body size, especially the thickening of our waist.
Speaking at the annual meeting of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes, Taylor argues that we should all have the same waist size as when we were 21. He says that even if we are not technically ‘overweight’, exceeding this limit and not wearing the trousers we wore in our youth days increases the risk of Type 2 Diabetes.
According to the results of the researches, it was revealed that people who are at a healthy weight and have type 2 diabetes have a chance to reverse the situation if they lose 10-15 percent of their body weight.
“WE SHOULD BE YOUR SIZE AT 21 YEARS OLD”
Taylor explains this by saying, ‘When you grope, your waist size should always be the same as when you were 21’.
“If you can’t fit into the pants you wore at that time, you are at risk of type 2 diabetes even if you are not overweight,” said Taylor. However, before doing this, it may be a good idea for these people to reduce their waist size by losing weight, because doing this solves the diabetes problem, adding a whole new dimension to the event.
TYPE 2 DIABETES TREATMENT IS SUPPORTED WITH WEIGHT LOSS
Although 8 of the 12 subjects participating in the study had a normal body mass index, they managed to repair the insulin-producing cells in these organs by reducing the fat ratio in their liver and pancreas. This is Prof. It was recorded as a finding that supports Taylor’s theory of fighting type 2 diabetes with weight loss.
In the measurements made after the subjects lost weight, their blood sugar levels were controlled and their diabetes decreased. Thus, they no longer need to use drugs.
“DIABETITY IS NOT CAUSED BY OBESITY, IT IS RELATED TO YOUR WEIGHT ACCORDING TO YOUR OWN BODY”
prof. Taylor said: “These results show that diabetes is not just an obesity-related problem, although the experiment has unconfirmed results. It’s not about obesity, it’s about being “too heavy for your body”. That is, regardless of body mass index, it is caused by the fat of your liver and pancreas.’ He recommends that you continue to follow your trouser measurements.
