Can diabetes have an effect on metabolism
I was just wondering does diabetes have an effect on your metabolism?
type 1 and type 2 diabetes will both effect metabolism.. Can anyone help me in clarifying this..
@chandra Diabetes, Type II in particular, affects your metabolism. Most Type II diabetics have high levels of insulin circulating in their bloodstream because their cells have become resistant to its effect. High insulin levels promote fat storage and inhibit fat metabolism. Most Type II diabetics are overweight because of this insulin resistance. Type I diabetes affects metabolism also, just in a different way, at least until injections of insulin are started. Type I diabetics produce little to no insulin and are typically thin as a result. Without adequate insulin levels, glucose can't be transported into the muscle or fat cells for energy or storage
