Washington: Adults of a normal weight with new-onset diabetes die at a higher rate than overweight/obese adults with the same disease, according to a new US study. The study found that normal-weight participants experienced both significantly higher total and non-cardiovascular mortality than overweight/obese participants.Normal-weight adults with type 2 diabetes have been understudied because those who typically develop the disease are overweight or obese. In this study about 10 percent of those with new-onset diabetes were at a normal weight at the time of ascertainment. Being overweight is a risk factor for developing this disease, but other risk factors such as family history, ethnicity and age may play a role.
