People who are obese and have diabetes are at increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes, according to a new study.
It is also possible that obesity could affect the way that a person is able to regulate blood sugar, which can affect how much glucose is in the blood.
There is growing evidence that obesity can affect blood sugar control and can lead to the development of diabetes, with a recent study in the New England Journal of Medicine suggesting that it may cause the development and worsening of the condition.
Obesity is defined as a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher and the proportion of the population that is obese is currently at a record high of 19%.
However, there is currently no specific screening tool that can be used to diagnose obesity and people with diabetes are not tested for it.
Researchers from the University of Washington analysed data from nearly 4,000 people with type 2 Diabetes from the US and Europe.
The results showed that people who were obese were at a greater risk of diabetes.
They had a 2.9 times higher risk of having diabetes in men than in women and had a 3.4 times higher rate of developing diabetes in women than in men.
The researchers also found that there were two distinct groups of people who had an increased risk for diabetes, those with an obesity of at least 30% and those with a BMI of at most 25%.
The most common type of obesity among people with obesity was being overweight or obese, which is defined by a BMI between 25 and 29.
However, the researchers also noticed that some people with a more normal weight, such as people with Type 2 diabetes and those who were overweight or obesity, had a significantly reduced risk of type 2 diabetic.
This suggests that the two groups of individuals might have a genetic predisposition to develop diabetes.
Researchers are not certain how much of this may be genetic, but the new findings are in line with earlier studies, which found that obesity may play a role in diabetes risk.
This is because obesity increases blood sugar levels, which could lead to problems controlling blood sugar.
Obese people are at a higher risk, but this does not mean they are necessarily at increased diabetes risk, according the researchers.
The study is the first to examine the relationship between obesity and diabetes.
Obstacles to healthIn the study, the participants were followed for an average of 14.5 years.
The average age of the study participants was 41.
Obsts were less likely to have a high BMI than normal weight participants, with the average BMI being 27.8 in the obese group and 29 in the normal weight group.
This suggested that those who are more obese may have a greater chance of developing Type 2 Diabetes, and therefore may have an increased chance of having a metabolic disorder such as type 2 hypertension or cardiovascular disease.
In addition, the people who suffered from diabetes were more likely to be obese than those who did not, indicating that this might have been a confounding factor.
This might also explain why the obese people had a higher rate than the normal-weight people of developing the condition, the study found.
However the researchers did not investigate the link between obesity levels and diabetes risk or the impact of obesity on blood sugar level.
This means that there is no evidence that it would be possible to say that the risk of Type 2 diabetic is reduced by being overweight.
This study does not suggest that obesity is linked to diabetes, but it does suggest that it might be associated with increased risk.
However this study does have limitations.
The participants were also not asked about any lifestyle factors that might have affected their diabetes.
The subjects were also asked about other health conditions that might be linked to type 2.
In this study, diabetes was not assessed using blood pressure, blood sugar or blood sugar monitoring devices.
This could have led to under-estimating the true risk of the disease.
People with diabetes could also have been more likely than normal-weights to report feeling irritable, moody, depressed or anxious.
The findings are important, as this may point to a possible relationship between diabetes and the metabolic disorders that can result from it.
