Diabetes: Are shorter people more likely to develop diabetes?

Diabetes: Many scientists in the world are doing studies on diabetes. New things keep coming out. Now a German study has shown that shorter people are more likely to develop diabetes. The new study found that short people are more likely to develop diabetes than tall people. Shorter men have a 41 percent increased risk of diabetes, while women have a 33 percent increased risk, researchers say. It also explains the relationship between diabetes and height.

The liver stores more fat in people who are short. This increases the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, cholesterol, swelling in the body, and metabolic diseases. All these are also related to diabetes. As fat in the liver increases, the risk of diabetes increases. Metabolism changes are high in people with small body. These changes increase the risk of developing such diseases. Fat levels in the liver are lower in tall people. Fat loss occurs slowly in the liver. This new study says that such people are less likely to develop diabetes.

Diabetes is a lifelong health problem. It can happen to anyone, anytime. Every year 10 lakh people die from diabetes related diseases alone. The cause of this diabetes is the increase in sugar content in the blood stream. If it is not controlled, problems like heart attack, kidney failure, brain stroke, blindness will occur. Sometimes feet and legs may also need to be removed. It is estimated that more than 42 crore people worldwide have diabetes. This number has now quadrupled compared to 40 years ago. Doctors say that the changing life style and food habits are increasing the number of diabetes sufferers. It is also known as glucose. A hormone called insulin is produced in the pancreas. It plays a key role in the energy conversion process. When insulin production decreases… then sugar accumulates in the blood instead of being converted into energy. This causes diabetes.

And type 2 diabetes is likely to occur in adults at any time. Gestational diabetes is a disease that occurs in women during pregnancy.
