Weight Loss and Type 1 Diabetes – Weight loss linked to Type 1 Diabetes?

One more fact is that children experience weight loss around the time of their diagnosis with Type 1 Diabetes. This leads to the conclusion that the body weight whether it is underweight, overweight or obesity is not related or even correlated with the development of Type 1 diabetes, but weight loss is connected with the development of type 1 diabetes.

The question is:

 Will the prevention of weight loss in overweight children protect them from developing type 1 diabetes?

The first answer is:

No, it will not. It will be insane to attempt to prevent weight loss without knowing what causes weight loss. One more fact is that many children experience weight gain that follows insulin treatment, but that doesn’t cure type 1 diabetes.

 

The essential step in order to understand how to prevent type 1 diabetes in children is to understand what really causes weight loss at the time of developing type 1 diabetes. The mechanism underlining weight loss prior or around the diagnosis of Type 1 diabetes is at the same time the mechanism underlining development of Type 1 diabetes.

Many children (and adults) experience voluntary or involuntary weight loss, but they do not develop Type 1 diabetes. Actually, the mechanism underlining weight loss in those people is different from the mechanism underlining weight loss in people who develop Type 1 diabetes.

Understanding the mechanism of weight gain and weight loss in people affected with Type 1 diabetes is an essential step to understand what really causes Type 1 Diabetes.

One of the problems is the accepted explanation for weight loss in people affected with type 1 diabetes around the time of diagnosis and before the treatment with insulin that says:

Quote:

“Without insulin, the body breaks down its own fat and muscle, leading to weight loss.”  Source: NHS website - Source: http://www.nhs.uk/Conditions/Diabetes-type1/Pages/Introduction.aspx 

This explanation is not only wrong, but is responsible for the huge rise in diabulimia.

At this point of the discussion regarding people with type 1 diabetes, the occurring weight loss before the insulin treatment should be regarded as unexplainable weight loss.

Actually any weight gain or weight loss in people, whether they are affected with type 1 diabetes or not, should be regarded as unexplainable because all the science about weight gain and weight loss, including the science of body shape, appears to be pseudoscience.

To understand the underlining mechanism of weight gain/weight loss, it is essential to understand the biological basis of weight gain/weight loss.

Please note the differences between the biological basis of weight gain and weight loss and the underlining mechanism weight gain and weight loss.

The biological basis of weight gain has only one basis.

The biological basis of weight loss has only one basis.

The underlying mechanisms of weight gain are many.

 The underlying mechanisms of weight loss are many.

Side note: The biological basis of weight gain and the biological basis of weight loss, the mechanism underlining body weight distribution and most common mechanisms of weight gain and weight loss I have explained in my book “Modern Science of Biomechanics & Weight Gain and Weight Loss”.

The relatively new science called Modern Science of Biomechanics explains the biological basis of weight gain and the mechanism of body weight distribution. More about weight gain and weight loss can be read here.
