London: A new study has revealed that men apparently develop type 2 diabetes with less weight gain than women.The study, carried out by academics at Glasgow University, found that men developed the disease at a lower Body Mass Index (BMI) as compared to women.Lead researcher Professor Naveed Sattar, of the Institute of Cardiovascular and Medical Sciences, said being overweight was a major risk factor for developing type 2 diabetes. Other factors were age, ethnicity and genetics.“Previous research has indicated that middle-aged men are at a higher risk of developing diabetes than women and one possible explanation is that men have to gain less weight than women to develop the condition,” the Scotsman quoted him as saying.“In other words, men appear to be at higher risk for diabetes,” he added.
