Over weight people with large waist- Risk of diabetes

Recent Study Sheds Light on Diabetes Risk “Overweight people with a large waist are as likely to develop type 2 diabetes in later life as those who are obese, according to an international study involving a Cambridge epidemiology unit.

Researchers say that while people who are overweight but “pear-shaped” have a relatively low risk of the disease, those who carry the extra pounds around their waist run similar risks as those who are seriously overweight.

Waist sizes of more than 102cm or 40in in men and bigger than 88cm or 34in in women are classed as large.”
