Type 2 diabetes (T2DM) is frequently regarded as a disease of obesity and its occurrence in individuals of normal body mass index (BMI) is often regarded as indicating a non-obesity-related subtype. [...] Key Method To illustrate this concept, we present the distribution curve of BMI at diagnosis for the UKPDS cohort, together with a diagram explaining individual behaviour within the population. The concept of PFT is of practical benefit in explaining the onset of diabetes and its logical management to the non…Expand
Type 2 diabetes prevalence in Pakistan: what is driving this? Clues from subgroup analysis of normal weight individuals in diabetes prevalence survey of Pakistan
TLDR
There are higher than expected rates of T2DM/prediabetes in Pakistani ethnicity normal BMI individuals and targeted screening of older individuals with historical lack of educational opportunity, with a family history of T 2DM even if of normal BMI may result in a significant benefit in the Pakistan population. Expand
Types of obesity and their prognostic value
TLDR
It is necessary to create a new classification that would improve the stratification of the risk of developing cardiovascular disease and death in people with obesity, based on the construction of statistical models. Expand
Associations of BMI, waist circumference, body fat, and skeletal muscle with type 2 diabetes in adults
TLDR
Estimated BF% associates strongly with type 2 diabetes, suggesting a neglected aspect of aetiology within T2D, and simple measures with biological relevance, available from data collected in most health surveys, may be more useful than the purely statistical terms BMI. Expand
Obesity as a multisystem disease: Trends in obesity rates and obesity‐related complications
TLDR
The rising prevalence of obesity is reviewed and potential mechanisms underlying its association with various comorbidities and how these respond to treatment are discussed, with a particular focus on cardiometabolic disease, malignancy and mental health. Expand
Calorie restriction and reversal of type 2 diabetes
  • Roy Taylor
  • Medicine
  • Expert review of endocrinology & metabolism
  • 2016
TLDR
Type 2 diabetes can now be understood as a state of excess fat in liver and pancreas, and remains reversible for at least 10 years in most individuals. Expand
Metabolic surgery for the treatment of type 2 diabetes in patients with BMI lower than 35 kg/m2: Why caution is still needed
  • B. Halpern, M. Mancini
  • Medicine
  • Obesity reviews : an official journal of the International Association for the Study of Obesity
  • 2019
TLDR
An overall view of the metabolic benefits of bariatric/metabolic surgery in patients with class 1 obesity is provided, the procedure against clinical treatment is compared, and the rationale for defending caution on recommending the procedure to less obese individuals is presented. Expand
Insulin Resistance in Primary Dietary Care Practice. Review of the Evidence and a Proposal for Daily Use
Background: Insulin resistance (IR) is a relevant metabolic problem in overweight, obesity, type 2 diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular disease, malignant disease and Alzheimer’s. According to theExpand
Fatty liver as a risk factor for progression from metabolically healthy to metabolically abnormal in non-overweight individuals
TLDR
Fatty liver is an independent risk factor for progression from metabolically healthy status to metabolically abnormal phenotype, even in non-overweight individuals, after adjusting for age, sex, alcohol, smoking, exercise, impaired fasting glucose, hypertension, hypertriglyceridemia, low high density lipoprotein-cholesterol concentration, and abdominal obesity.

Comparison of obesity indices and triglyceride glucose-related parameters to predict type 2 diabetes mellitus among normal-weight elderly in China
  • Pan Ke, Xia Wu, +12 authors Zuxun Lu
  • Medicine
  • Eating and Weight Disorders - Studies on Anorexia, Bulimia and Obesity
  • 2021
TLDR
TyG is an effective marker and outperforms other indices when predicting T2DM in the normal-weight Chinese elderly population and performs better than other indices in the predictive value of obesity indices. Expand
Very Low-Calorie Diet and 6 Months of Weight Stability in Type 2 Diabetes: Pathophysiological Changes in Responders and Nonresponders
TLDR
A robust and sustainable weight loss program achieved continuing remission of diabetes for at least 6 months in the 40% who responded to a VLCD by achieving fasting plasma glucose of <7 mmol/L, suggesting T2DM is a potentially reversible condition. Expand

TLDR
Prevention of type 2 diabetes mellitus with lifestyle intervention is at least as effective in non-obese as in obese prediabetic subjects, and recent data suggest that metformin treatment targeting insulin resistance and non-glycemic cardiovascular disease risk factors is as beneficial in non/obese patients with T2DM.

DIET , LIFESTYLE , AND THE RISK OF TYPE 2 DIABETES MELLITUS IN WOMEN
A BSTRACT Background Previous studies have examined individual dietary and lifestyle factors in relation to type 2 diabetes, but the combined effects of these factors are largely unknown. Methods WeExpand
Diabetes incidence in Pima indians: contributions of obesity and parental diabetes.
TLDR
In the Pimas, both obesity and diabetes have become more common during this century, perhaps as a result of rapid cultural and dietary changes in a population genetically susceptible to diabetes. Expand
A Comparison of the Relative Effects of Obesity and Non-insulin-dependent Diabetes Mellitus on In Vivo Insulin-stimulated Glucose Utilization
TLDR
The data emphasize the profound effect of NIDDM on reducing in vivo insulin action, and point out that the impact of obesity on insulin resistance is minor in comparison. Expand
Long-term effect of metformin on blood glucose control in non-obese patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus
TLDR
The present study demonstrated the long-term beneficial effect of metformin in non-obese (BMI < 25 kg/m2) diabetic patients and the observed worsening in glycemic control over time can probably be attenuated by increasing the dose of meetformin. Expand
The impact of liver fat vs visceral fat in determining categories of prediabetes
TLDR
Liver fat, more than visceral fat, strongly increases when glycaemia and glucose tolerance move from NGT to isolated IFG, isolated IGT and IFG+IGT, and it is worth searching for hepatokines more strongly predicting prediabetes categories. Expand
UK Prospective Diabetes Study 7: response of fasting plasma glucose to diet therapy in newly presenting type II diabetic patients, UKPDS Group.
  • Medicine
  • Metabolism: clinical and experimental
  • 1990
TLDR
The response to diet of 3,044 newly diagnosed diabetic patients with a fasting plasma glucose of 12.1 +/- 3.7 mmol/L, age 52 +/- 8 years, and body weight 130% +/- 26% ideal body weight has been studied confirms the value of dieting, but in view of the large weight loss and equivalent large reduction in energy intake required in most patients, it is not surprising that few patients achieve near-normal fasting Plasma glucose concentrations by diet alone.

Reversal of type 2 diabetes: normalisation of beta cell function in association with decreased pancreas and liver triacylglycerol
TLDR
Normalisation of both beta cell function and hepatic insulin sensitivity in type 2 diabetes was achieved by dietary energy restriction alone, and was associated with decreased pancreatic and liver triacylglycerol stores. Expand
Effects of Weight Loss on Mechanisms of Hyperglycemia in Obese Non-Insulin-Dependent Diabetes Mellitus
TLDR
In obese NIDDM, weight loss results in improved glucose homeostasis with improved postprandial glucose excursions with marked amelioration of peripheral insulin resistance due to improved postreceptor insulin action, which is at least partly due to enhanced glucose transport system activity. Expand
Intrahepatic fat, not visceral fat, is linked with metabolic complications of obesity
TLDR
Data demonstrate that IHTG, not VAT, is a better marker of the metabolic derangements associated with obesity, and alterations in tissue fatty acid transport could be involved in the pathogenesis of ectopic triglyceride accumulation by redirecting plasma fatty acid uptake from adipose tissue toward other tissues.
