Obesity

The overweight are particularly prone and especially the mature female. The woman who has had several pregnancies with babies each of increasing size, or all of over average birth weight, is well known to be at risk. In fact, the overweight and obese may, by their size, be demonstrating an essential inability to deal efficiently with the carbohydrate or sugars they eat an inability that later is shown in its more extreme form as diabetes. It has been said that overeating throws an excessive strain on the pancreas, a strain that in the end causes its failure. It may be, however, that those who become obese, and consistently overeat, are prone to diabetes through inheritance anyway. The evidence of control in diabetes by diet does show, nevertheless, that a high blood sugar can be reduced and sugar in the urine eliminated by diet alone and this suggests that the cause and the effect are closely associated.
