Weight control is an important issue in diabetes. Type 2 diabetes often results from insulin resistance, which is made worse by excess body fat. Getting and keeping your weight in an ideal range will help you to better manage your diabetes.

If you are overweight, it is important that you work with your doctor in developing diet and exercise parameters to get you to a more healthy weight.
