It is important for patients with type 1 diabetes to maintain their weight, according to a study by the University of Washington in Seattle. Lead author, Dr. Ian H. de Boer says “Our results suggest that weight control is important in type 1 diabetes and that overweight patients with type 1 diabetes may need further evaluation and treatment."

The researchers looked at long term data for nearly 1,300 patients to determine how obesity (specifically central obesity around the midsection) affects the risk of kidney disease. They found that the risk of microalbuminuria was significantly higher for patients with central obesity. In fact, the bigger the waistline, the higher the risk.

They believe that pancreatic cancer is caused when the pancreas produces heightened levels of insulin as a consequence of upset glucose metabolism. For some time now, scientists have believed that there could be a link. Insulin production can be increased by eating lots of sugar, and now they have evidence that the consumption of sweetened food and drink affects a person's chances of developing pancreatic cancer.
