Introduction 

If one becomes obese in adolescence and is vulnerable to it for a long time, then the risk of diabetes can increase. This has been claimed in recent research. This research has been done in the "Indiana University" of America.

Fat in adolescence is harmful

Everyone knows that obesity is the most important cause of diabetes, but little is known about the connection between obesity and the onset of diabetes? In the research, researchers used data from the Australian Longitudinal Study on Women's Health. He found out how much the participants' BMI was.
           The research found that those who had a higher BMI at younger ages or adolescents had a higher risk of diabetes than those who had gained weight when they were adults. A 1-year delay in being obese reduced the risk of diabetes by 13%. Participants who were obese from a young age to an adult had a higher risk of developing diabetes. The research found that the genes women had a BMI of over 30 were 7 times more likely to have diabetes. Those whose BMI was between 25 and 2.9 had 2.2 times higher risk of diabetes.
           Researchers said that having a high BMI during adolescence and puberty is the most important cause of diabetes in adults. After research, women who became fat after the age of 18 years were more likely to have diabetes than women who are not fat. The younger the age of onset of obesity, the longer the person suffers from obesity, the higher the probability of diabetes.

Walking for half an hour daily will reduce the risk of diabetes

Half an hour of daily or moderate exercise can reduce the risk of developing diabetes. This has been claimed in recent research. According to researchers, just 30 minutes of easy exercise every day, such as fast walking or gardening, increases the level of a hormone in the body that reduces hunger and also reduces blood sugar levels.
