Studies Define Type 2 Diabetes Risk Factors in Women, Adolescents

Another study from the same research team examined increased physical fitness and dietary modification for their roles in the management in diabetes in adolescents. This study paid particular attention to associations between lifestyle factors and overall metabolic health.

More than 100 adolescents were studied for type (both type 1 and 2) and duration of diabetes, BMI, physical fitness, and carbohydrate and saturated fat intake. Their results indicated that higher fitness levels, rather than fat, were a stronger predictor of better metabolic control. Duration of diabetes and saturated fat consumption were significant determinants of higher total and LDL cholesterol. Those with type 2 exhibited elevated levels of triglycerides similar to what is observed in the adult population.

Lead author Sara B. Fleet, Ph.D., says poor metabolic health is considered a precursor for type 2 diabetes, coronary artery disease and other chronic health problems. "Young people with diabetes have to model management of their
