In fact, about 80-90 percent of folks who have type 2 diabetes have obesity or even severe obesity which causes resistance to insulin. While medications can help to some degree in improving blood sugar, people that are obese and particularly severely obese, the medications can only do so much. Unfortunately, losing weight with diet and exercise and drug therapy is very difficult.

By losing the weight, the patient’s insulin resistance decreases and this results in a very rapid improvement in their blood sugar. For more details, contact us at
