Are you struggling to control your diabetes?
About 90% of people with Type 2 diabetes are either overweight or obese. Weight loss improves blood glucose control. However research shows that people with Type 2 diabetes struggle more than the general population to lose weight.
Are you worried about the complications of diabetes?
The London Obesity Clinic offers a specialist plan for the prevention and control of weight-related Type 2 Diabetes. We refer to the combined treatment of Diabetes and Obesity as “Diabesity”.
What are the reasons for weight gain in people with Type 2 diabetes?
Some of the reasons for weight gain in people with diabetes is shown below:
- Altered metabolism
- Altered hunger pattern
- Hypoglycaemia (low blood glucose)
- Emotional eating
- Associated medical conditions
People with type 2 diabetes struggle to lose weight as there are several factors which interfere with their weight management plan. Whilst following a weight management plan people with type 2 diabetes should not only monitor their blood glucose but also alter the dose of tablets or medication. People who have altered hunger patterns or repeated low blood glucose readings struggle to cut down on their food intake.
If you feel your Type 2 diabetes is not under control and you are overweight, please contact us if you would like to lose weight and improve your blood glucose control.
Do you want to stop taking Diabetes medications?
People who are overweight or obese are more prone to developing Type 2 diabetes. Those who have Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes with weight problems struggle to control their blood sugar levels. Research shows that people with diabetes find it more difficult to lose weight than those without diabetes.
Weight loss significantly improves blood sugar control and also reduces the risk of getting complications from diabetes. However, whilst attempting to lose weight, people with diabetes find it hard to restrict their intake of food, since eating less may trigger hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). All these facts explain the need for specialist input in the management of weight in people with diabetes.
