most diabetes in america is type 2. that guy is almost deffo type 2. type 2 is derived from gettin real fat. most fat peeps get there w carbs

so the right-now problem is lack of carbs, the long term problem is probably too many carbs, why diabetes is a wily disease

Check your science.

Type2 being the type that results from too many carbs would be so goddamn useful but it involves adding a real fuckload of types.

note my wording

you get type 2 from being real fat cuz fat is an endocrine organ. you could get fat by eating lots of protein but most peeps dont do this because carbs are the cheapest and most commonly flavored nutrient

I'm serious about diabetes. For a reason.

Type1 is the kind where you don't have insulin, type2 is the kind where your tissues don't respond to insulin right. It can be because they're full of fat but that's not always the answer.

Your science is bad. You can get type2 from getting fat but there's so, so many other causes. Diabetes being sorted by cause rather than by symptoms would be super useful if we could trust doctors to give a poo poo and do the work to identify the cause.

yeah type 2 is just resistance in general, and there's loads of things that create resistance, though fat is the predominant cause in america the idea it's the only cause causes a lot of misdiagnoses of type 2 when it's really type 1 (this happened to an old friend of mine), not identifying actual pancreatic disorders, etc

bein fat is the number 1 cause by an absolute dumptruck fuckton

if you were a rando and you wanted a magic ticket to reduce risk of t2d the first advice is to go and stop being fat. by a lot

its like 80% stop being fat, 15% stop smoking, then other bullshit

you would get proper diagnosis of weird poo poo if doctors didnt have double digit percentages of the entire practice of healthcare just going "ok t2d cuz mets, try to not be so fat lol bye"

Even that's questionable, the disease causes a feedback loop that'll make you fat (and in turn worsens the disease further). It might be the actual cause is poor sleep quality, caused by stress. Would explain the statistics. Capitalism causing type2 isn't even wrong.

Well, that isn't even close for two major reasons. Being fat is hardly ever the cause, merely the factor that makes the disease bad enough for it to require treatment. And to reduce the risk, you wouldn't tell people to stop being fat, both because that doesn't work (people don't get not fat because you tell them being fat is bad, most fat people do not like being fat to begin with), and because they already have the disease in a condition that requires someone competent to unfuck their system by the time they get fat enough to make it clear.

my stepdad was diagnosed with type 2 at like, 55, told to unfuck his poo poo or die in five years, cut back on smoking and stopped eating so much garbage and drinking a 2L of pepsi a day and now he's no longer going to be in a box by 2023

e: he's also on meds for it but was told that if he took the meds and didn't stop being poo poo to his body then five years was optimistic.

Mind you, full cleanup of the way you live does a lot, but that involves not being broke and tired first. After that you add proper sleep hygiene, exercise and a varied diet and it'll probably get fixed... if it isn't one of the other causes, which aren't nearly as common, and yet are common enough they crop up constantly.

Doctors have pills to fix the diabetes-caused changes that make it nigh impossible to lose weight, but if the "constantly broke and tired" isn't fixed first, you might as well be farting in Sahara.

Doctors telling people to lose weight has also been investigated for efficiency and we've found it's actually worse than just not doing anything.
