    Hi

    It's interesting information. A new type 2 without any insulin resistant and decreased production of insulin.

    quotation:
    Italian scientists who conducted the Verona Newly Diagnosed Type 2 Diabetes Study have found that Type 2 diabetics who have high blood sugar levels but who aren't overweight often have abnormalities in a gene called TCF7L2. When this gene does not function correctly, the beta cells may stop producing enough insulin but fat, muscle, and liver still respond to insulin properly. Usually Type 2's develop insulin resistance and then their insulin-producing cells "burn out". When the problem is genetic, and with this gene, then Type 2 diabetes comes about without the years of insulin resistance and weight gain first.Article Source: http://EzineArticles.com/5734301

    Thank you
