Losing weight is often suggested for type 2 diabetes patients. They need to lose fat so that they can increase their insulin resistance. By losing weight, diabetics can become less resistant to insulin and manage it better by allowing better circulation of insulin levels in their blood. It is important to reduce the insulin resistance in order to help glucose enter tissues and metabolize cells. This is hard to do since the higher the insulin level the harder it is to lose weight because insulin likes to store fat.
