Most people who are overweight have a variety of cancers. One type that’s particularly well-known is type 2 diabetes, a chronic condition in which the body produces too much insulin, which leads to the body breaking down muscle, tissues, and organs in the body, resulting in weight loss. In some people, the type 2 diabetes can also cause problems with blood sugar control. These problems may cause weight loss as well.
Weight loss may also happen to people who have certain hormone disorders, including hormone replacement therapy. In those people, the pancreas can produce less insulin than it normally would in healthy people, resulting in uncontrolled weight gain. There are also people with hereditary diseases that affect the development of the pancreas and pancreas tissue, such as sickle cell anemia caused by mutations in the gene that makes the SNA gene. The symptoms of these diseases can include weight gain, increased pain, and fatigue. As a result, these people often lose weight, either because of their condition or because they eat less than usual.
How often should I lose weight?
Because of the difficulty in losing weight in most people, health care providers say that the appropriate guidelines are to lose around 5 to 10 percent of your body size each month, or until you notice that your weight is gradually, but steadily, dropping back.
Some people find that a change in diet can help to reduce the number of pounds they lose in a month. But, if you are overweight, you should take into account the advice of your health care team. A weight loss program should be designed to minimize any unwanted consequences such as:
dyslipidemia (low or absent blood cholesterol)
high blood pressure
high cholesterol levels
dysphagia (harsh hunger), which is loss of appetite that can lead to overeating.
The right kind of treatment of your diabetes and weight problems also depends on the type of weight you have managed to lose. Some people with these type 2 diabetes conditions may need to drop a bit of weight, or even completely lose it, while others may have to keep the weight off for long periods.
What types of weight loss programs work for me?
You will need to find a program that works for your size and needs with your diabetes. Some programs are designed specifically for type 2 diabetes. For these, you may need to eat some foods that cause your blood insulin to rise, such as yogurt
