Letter from the Editor, #694: Why Some Obese Patients Don’t Get Diabetes

We have seen numerous studies demonstrating the value of resistance exercise for diabetes patients but often we only think of weights and machines and those methods rule out a lot of our patients. This week, Dr. Sheri Colberg brings us a primer on how all our patients can do some sort of resistance training.

If you take the time to read the item Why Many Obese People Don’t Get Diabetes, you will have an answer when one of your patients ask you why their friend who eats everything in sight, weighs over 300 pounds, and never exercises, doesn’t have diabetes.
